Summer Baroque in the Trees is a 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! This year there are two concerts in the series. The 1st concert features the Gallo Chamber Players.

Gallo Chamber Players are a collective of performers specializing in music from the Baroque period – from 1600 to 1750. The collaborative spirit of the core players brings a vast repertoire of music to their audiences. They present concerts in various ensemble sizes, from chamber orchestras to solos, and include guest performers, both local and from abroad. Based in Vancouver, GCP aims to bring the joy and love of gut strings and historically stylistic playing to the local communities of BC. In this concert, Gallo Chamber Players will be exploring how to identify different characters and classic fairytale tropes in music, as well as how composers were inspired to retell the stories they knew through music.
Please bring your own lawn chair.
There will be a 20 minute intermission where refreshments will be served.
