Three Lapsed Lawyers

Saturday, 18 February 8pm
Alix Goolden Performance Hall, 907 Pandora

A concert of uplifting music featuring the young voices of the renowned Victoria Children’s Choir – a perfect tonic to clear away any lingering effects of winter.
Traditionally the Festival’s most popular concert, this year’s program promises to again enlighten and inspire with a program that includes rare performances of Telemann’s vocal music based on stirring Lutheran chorales. Enjoy as well a flute concerto by Johann Heinichen and an overture by Christoph Graupner, and appreciate why these two composers were highly regarded in their time. Telemann’s music then rounds out this concert, including a remarkable concerto for 4 violins and a sonata for viola da gamba and strings in which the Festival’s guest soloist Kenneth Slowik will captivate the audience.
