‘Obsession’ mixes musical eras

Soprano Camille Hesketh brings her voice to the Chemainus Classical Concerts’ series

Obsession is a timeless thing.

Soprano Camille Hesketh brings her voice to the Chemainus Classical Concerts’ series latest presentation, Obsession’s Garden, on Sunday, Feb. 14 starting at 2 p.m.

She will be joined by Guzmán Ramos on theorbo, and Terri Hron, composer in the delightful concert at St. Michael’s Church in Chemainus.

In what series publicist Marion Priestley calls “a unique and delicate program” music lovers can enjoy “the melding of intimate works from the 16th century masters with a world premiere of Canadian composer Hron’s new piece, Petrified Gorgon.”

These three gifted performers “conjure an intricately layered path of sound and image among pangs of desire and obsession through the ages,” Priestley says of what audiences can expect.

Tickets at the door are $20 for adults or $5 for music lovers under age 18.
