Vernon Proms Classical Music Festival, in co-presentation with Early Music Vancouver and with informational support from Chamber Music Kelowna, is proud to present celebrated Baroque ensemble Les Boréades de Montréal with a program of Johann Sebastian Bach’s complete Brandenburg Concertos – in Vernon on Saturday, August 3rd, 7:00pm at Trinity United Church (Concertos #1, 3 and 5) and in Kelowna Sunday, August 4th, 7:00pm at Mary Irwin Theatre (Concertos #2, 4 and 6).
Founded by Francis Colpron in 1991, Les Boréades de Montréal focuses on early music. The ensemble has chosen an interpretative approach in keeping with the spirit of the Baroque era, by adhering to the rules of performance practice of the past and playing on period instruments. Critics and audiences alike in Canada and abroad have been unanimous in hailing the group’s energy and spontaneity as well as its theatrical, expressive and elegant playing, indicative of a unique flair for Baroque aesthetics.
This is a rare opportunity for Okanagan concert goers to hear the one of the monuments of Baroque instrumental music performed in its entirety by a world-class ensemble on period instruments.
There will be pre-concert talks at 6:15pm.
