Paul Luchkow hails from Victoria BC to be our guest artist and director for this concert. A versatile violinist and violist whose activities cover the range of music from the 17th century to the present day on modern and period instruments. He performs with The Victoria Baroque players, Early Music Vancouver and the Portland Baroque Orchestra. He will lead the way to explore gut strings, baroque bows and he will unravel the mysteries of the string world.
As well, Tara And Marie-Noelle will perform the Brandenburg IV on recorder with Paul on Violin. Anyone who loves Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos will not want to miss this — one of our favourite pieces.
