Summer Baroque in the Trees is Salt Spring Baroque’s two-day concert festival that grew from a desire to keep presenting concerts 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.

On Saturday, July 27th Salt Spring Baroque presents The Gallo Chamber Players violin trio: Majka Demcak, Rebecca Ruthven, and Jiten Beairsto. Their concert Crossroads & Consolations will include the rarely-performed Sonata for Three violins by Austrian composer Johann Joseph Fux, the Adagio from the “Die Relenge” (“Tree Frog”) Violin Concerto by Georg Friedrich Telemann, the virtuosic Violin Concerto by Italian composer Francesco Durante, and a new set of pieces entitled "Consolations" by Rebecca Nelson, which travels seamlessly between baroque, folk, and contemporary classical music.

The second concert on Sunday, July 28th will feature Concerti a Due Cori in our first antiphonal concert on two stages. One of the first composers writing solely for instruments was Giovanni Gabrieli (1554-1612). Gabrieli, while the organist at St. Marks Basilica in Venice, perfected a compositional technique known as cori spezzati, where composers would contrast different instrumentalists by placing them in different areas of the sanctuary. One ensemble would play the “call” and another give the “response” in a musical back and forth known as antiphonal performance. The concert will include works by Canale, Gabrieli, Marini, Cavaccio, Picchi, Viadana, Chedeville, and others. The players are:
Jeremy Berkman and Marcus Hissen, sackbuts
Katrina Russell and Kerry Graham, dulcians
Paul Luchkow and Kathryn Wiebe, violins
Marea Chernoff and Bill Jamieson, recorders

Bring a lawn chair, hat and water. No dogs please. There will be an intermission with refreshments served.
