Music on Sunday welcomes Viveza back to The Old School House

Music on Sunday at The Old School House is a musical highlight in Qualicum Beach

Salon Music Sensation Viveza will bring their eclectic program to Qualicum Beach Oct. 23 for another Music on Sunday performance at The Old School House Arts Centre (TOSH).

For 20 years, Viveza, Canada’s premier salon music group, has been arranging and performing the delightful repertoire of miniatures by the great composers from Brahms to Piazzolla, with a dash of Spanish music and Tango.

The name Viveza is Spanish for “lively, vivacious,” and the musicians, who play symphony and opera and teach in academy and conservatory, come together in Viveza for the joy of making their own music.

This type of music is commonly referred to as “salon” or “palm court” music which originated around the turn of the 20th century in hazy establishments that provided refreshments to a less-than-completely polite segment of society.

Their program frequently consists of sensual dances like the tango and other equally exotic fare which are certain to bring a taste of Buenos Aires to Oceanside.

With six best-selling CDs to their name, heard regularly on CBC’s Disc Drive and other national programs, Viveza has reached a wide audience of Canadian listeners coast to coast and their national fan base is astounding.

The performance is on Sunday, October 23 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at TOSH, located at 122 Fern Road West, Qualicum Beach, B.C.
