JOHN MCLACHLAN: EARLY MORNING RAIN

January 23, 2022 | 7:30pm

BC-born folk singer/songwriter John McLachlan’s original folk songs are hand-woven from his own roots, and the history and salty air of Canada’s west coast. After a hiatus from touring, McLachlan returned to music in 2014 and has since recorded four albums while working to release multiple tribute albums of Gordon Lightfoot’s music from the early 1970s.

This show, titled Early Morning Rain: the songs of Gordon Lightfoot, focuses on Lightfoot’s music and also features multi-instrumentalist Marc Atkinson and bassist Scott White.

The trio’s virtuosity, rigour, creativity and impressive stage presence – where humour and interacting with the public go hand in hand – have been winning over audiences around the world.

In collaboration with the California Guitar Trio (CGT), both ensembles joined forces in 2010 to tour across North America with an unforgettable concert experience, brilliantly performing some of the greatest rock classics from The Beatles, Radiohead, David Bowie, a few “spaghetti western” themes by Ennio Morricone, and some original compositions.

THE YOUNG BEETHOVEN

April 02, 2022 | 8:00pm

Delayed eighteen months by the pandemic, Young Beethoven commemorates the 250th Anniversary of the composers’ birth in 1770. Featuring an ensemble of outstanding West Coast chamber players, the programme presents works that Beethoven composed before the age of thirty.

Designed and narrated by Impresario and raconteur George Zukerman, this show concludes with Beethoven’s semi-orchestral septet, a work which was so immensely popular when first written that Beethoven was overheard declaring, “I wish somebody would burn that piece! Noboday is listening to anything else I have ever written! 

Adults: $35 | Seniors: $32 | Students: $15

THE FRETLESS

April 10, 2022 | 7:30pm

The Fretless is the Canadian ensemble playing an essential part in the emerging movement mainstreaming traditional music, and connecting traditional styles with diverse audiences around the world. Through its deconstruction and transformation of the usual rhythmic, harmonic and structured arrangements of fiddle styles around the world, The Fretless is pushing traditional music to a new place, and has now issued itself an atypical challenge in the mission to find and convert fans unfamiliar with “progressive” traditional music.

Adults: $35 | Seniors: $32 | Students: $15

THE NAADALEELA ENSEMBLE

May 29, 2022 | 7:30pm

The Naadaleela Ensemble creates a musical conversation between ancient cultures that span the Silk Road – from Iran to India and China  – and which have been influencing each other for over 2,000 years. Even though the group represents some of the largest cultural communities in BC, very few projects feature such collaborations.

Drawing on their training across a range of musical disciplines, the musicians reach into and across lines of difference, fusing together influences of South Indian, Chinese, Persian, Taiwanese, Indonesian, western classical, contemporary music, and jazz. The result is a heady and aromatic offering.

Adults: $35 | Seniors: $32 | Students: $15

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination – and life to everything.
