Classical concert to celebrate Easter

Concert of sacred songs at Parksville's St. Anne St. Edmund Anglican Church on March 29

Jean Parkin will be hosting a concert at St. Anne St. Edmund Anglican Church on March 29 to celebrate Easter.

The Nanaimo-based soprano, who will be accompanied by Sylvia Gauthier on the trumpet and Victoria’s Ellen Boston on piano, has chosen a selection of classical sacred songs for the event.

“We are performing works pertaining to Easter,” she said.

The set list ranges from traditional hymns, Were you There and There is a Redeemer to Prayer from Bach’s St. Matthew Passion. The recital will also include Fulget Amica Dies, Tu Virginum and Alleluja from Mozart’s Exsultate, Jubilate, as well as selections by Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Stephen Adams and César Franck.

Parkin is a trained soprano who started singing in her native South Africa. Over the past 30 years, she has performed in Cape Town, Vancouver, Australia and other places around the world.

The concert will be on March 29 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $18 and will only be sold at the door.
