Go for baroque

Island Baroque Ensemble to play Qualicum Beach, Nanoose Bay this weekend as part of Island tour.

The Island Baroque Ensemble kicks off a series of local performance beginning Saturday at St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Qualicum Beach.

Two more shows will follow Sunday in Nanoose Bay.

The ensemble plays Renaissance and baroque music with recorders, et al, as well as  modern instruments. The quartet is made up of Marjorie Cullerne (violin), Cuyler Page (recorders), Helena Jung (cello) and John Nelson (organ).

“We look forward to again performing this wonderful music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods of musical history,” said Cullerne, the group’s leader. “For this tour we are looking forward to seeing our friends in the audience, and making new ones. I am personally very pleased to be working with these wonderful musicians.”

Saturday’s concert at St. Mark’s begins at 2:30 p.m., at 138 Hoylake Rd. West in Qualicum Beach.

Sunday’s concerts will be held in Nanoose Bay, with a 2:30 p.m. matinee at St. Mary’s Anglican Church (2600 Powder Point Rd.), followed by a 7:30 p.m. performance at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (4235 Departure Bay Rd.).
