The Chemainus Classical Concert for October is set for Sunday, Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. at St. Michael’s Church.

It features Schubert’s Die Schone Müllerin (The Lovely Maid of the Mill) performed by tenor Grant Mellemstrand and pianist Naomi Barclay.

The famous song cycle tells a story of unrequited love, moving from cheerful optimism in the early stages to despair and tragedy, and ending with a lullaby sung by a stream.

Performed by the well-known husband and wife duo, this pinnacle of the lieder genre will command admiration while pulling at the heartstrings of the audience.

Tickets are available at the door for $20.
