Information on our 2019 concert offerings is now available!
We do not print tickets to our concerts, but seats can be reserved here and paid for at the door (cash only). The space is small; reserving is recommended and helps us with our planning.
All concerts will take place in the Conference Hall at Dalnavert Museum & Visitors’ Centre (61 Carlton Street), which is wheelchair accessible. Visitor parking is available, and several Winnipeg Transit bus routes stop within a couple of blocks.
The reduced rate applies to anyone who feels they cannot justify a $20 admission fee, for whatever reason. Please come! And if $10 is still a barrier, get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll find a way for you to make it.
Concert 3: Filament
Wednesday May 8, 2019, 7:00 PM
Online RSVPs for this concert are now closed, but there are still seats available at the door.
We wrap up the season with a concert of late Baroque and early Classical music for strings and harpsichord: The viola steps out of its usual supporting role in Flackton's noble viola sonata to deliver both sympathy and exuberance with steady strength. The harpsichord brings the "class" to "Classical" in a 1760s work which obviously inspired Mozart. Full, deep, dignified joy emerges when the quiet but strong harpsichord becomes the solo instrument with the others supporting. A pair of violins co-lead a trio as the instruments cascade, chase, and poke each other forward through a series of flourishes that are more serious than playful. Corelli's poetic instrumental writing shows itself worthy of its early status as classic musical literature. The power of two cellos flows with focus in a finely crafted quintet by Boccherini. Zero gravity is evoked in its effortless, dancing grace.
