CONTEST ALERT: The 2nd Annual Vancouver Bach Festival Will Inspire and Transform Audiences

Early Music Vancouver presents the return of the Vancouver Bach Festival, August 1–11, 2017 in the heart of the city at Christ Church Cathedral. Following the success of last summer’s inaugural festival, EMV offers a remarkable 14 concerts and features guest artists from all over the world.

Inspired by the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation, this year’s festival celebrates music’s supreme ability to convert, transform, and persuade. Highlight concerts include Matt Haimovitz’s intriguing new perspective on Bach’s Cello Suites in Overtures to Bach; the Vancouver premiere of The Fountains of Israel, a relatively unknown masterpiece by composer Johann Schein; Pacific MusicWorks in Music of Missions and Mystery; and a stirring finale of Bach’s monumental St. John Passion at the Chan Centre

On August 10 at 7:30pm at Christ Church Cathedral, Pacific MusicWorks, led by GRAMMY award-winner Stephen Stubbs, explores works written as part of the Catholic Church’s Counter-Reformation in Music of Missions and Mystery: Latin American Baroque. Audiences will hear a vibrant mix of Italian, Spanish, African, and indigenous elements that inspired the new musical style heard in cathedrals and missions of colonial Latin America that continue to speak to us today.

WE’RE GIVING AWAY A PAIR OF TICKETS TO MUSIC OF MISSIONS AND MYSTERY: LATIN BAROQUE ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 10TH AT 7:30PM AT CHRIST CHURCH CATHEDRAL!
