Our next concert is scheduled for December 5, 2010 at 8:00 pm. The concert is built around the Flemish composer, arranger and publisher Tielman Susato. Living in Antwerp, Susato was the first significant music publisher in the Netherlands. Similar to the impact of early book publishing, the introduction of larger-scale publishing of music had a profound effect on the musical world. It was responsible for the explosion of printed music in the 16th century and later, and for bringing art music to a wider range of musicians and audiences. And quite aside from his influence as a publisher, Susato wrote and arranged a great volume of tuneful, light-hearted music, much of which is still widely performed today. Join us as we explore the world and music of this great Renaissance figure. Tickets for the concert are $15 apiece and will be available at the door (cash or cheque only, please). You may order tickets in advance by phoning 250-370-1067 or by sending us a message on the "Contact Us" page on this site.
