Summer Baroque in the Trees is a 2-day concert series that grew from a desire to keep performing during the Covid-19 pandemic. We learned that it was safer to attend events outside – and Summer Baroque in the Trees was born!  Come and sit amongst the arbutus and Douglas firs, watch the deer saunter by, and enjoy some beautiful baroque music.

Concert #2 July 28th

This summer we are pleased to present our first Antiphonal concert on two stages!

This concert is in the planning stages, and more information will be available soon, but save the date – you don’t want to miss this!.  The concert will be in the style of those performed by Gabrieli at St. Marks Cathedral in Venice in the late 1580s and 1590s.  You will hear sackbuts, cornetti, dulcians and violins in music specifically written for two instrumental choirs on two opposing platforms, taking advantage of the various effects achieved with instruments in this formation. Let’s see if our Salt Spring trees have been found to be a good substitute for a large Venetian Cathedral!

Please bring a hat or umbrella and your own lawn chair (we will have a few extra chairs if you need one), and park on the cul-de-sac.  No dogs allowed.

There will be an intermission where refreshments will be served.  Tickets are $25 or $40 for both concerts and will be available soon.
