7th ArtSpring Chamber Music Festival this Week!

    Local News    July 23, 2014

Since 2008, the Salt Spring Chamber Music Festival has had its home at ArtSpring. Again this July 21-26, the distinguished faculty David Visentin (Artistic Director), Hiroko Kagawa, Paula Kiffner, Kai Gleusteen, Catherine Ordronneau and Guest Artist-in-Residence Guillaume Tardif bring their vast talents to spread the music of Bach, Haydn, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Ysaye, Ravel and Faure through ArtSpring. This year the Festival will bring the music to the community with impromptu mini-concerts outside Salt Spring Books, in Centennial Park and at busker corner on McPhillips Ave.

The SSCMF faculty is remarkable in its vast artistic and pedagogical experience. It includes musicians and concertmasters with major Canadian and International orchestras, founders of ensembles such as the Boreas String Quartet, and winners of international music competitions. There are members of the SSCMF faculty who are also faculty with some of the most well-respected Canadian and international music institutions. And in addition to this, they’re also all-round great folks which we are so happy to welcome back to ArtSpring.

In the past both Salt Spring and international students have benefited from the intensive one week festival. These are students between the ages of 13-26 who are already playing at a very high level and often use the festival as a training ground for international music festivals.

The 2015 Chamber Music Festival is already in the planning stages with the hope to create a collaborative concert between the Chamber Musicians and members of the Salt Spring arts community. ArtSpring would love to draw from musicians, poets, story-tellers, dancers, etc in the community for next year’s concert. We encourage all those who are interested to attend the two concerts this year, be inspired and dream of potential collaborations for 2015.

Student Concert
Friday, July 25 – 7:00pm
Adult: $19, Youth $5

Faculty Concert
Saturday, July 26 – 7:00pm
Adult: $20, Youth $5
