Co-presented by Early Music Society of the Islands, Victoria Baroque, EMV: Pacific Baroque Series, and Christ Church Cathedral, Music for the Pause is a new online concert series created by violinist Chloe Kim. Scheduled to premiere on Friday, July 3 at 7:30PM, this series includes 11 unique programmes that will be released weekly until September 11.
This initiative features a roster of a dozen almost exclusively Victoria-based artists. Local luminaries include Jeanne Lamon, Music Director Emerita of Tafelmusik, Victoria Baroque’s Artistic Director Soile Stratkauskas and the Victoria Symphony’s Assistant Concertmaster Christi Meyers.
The concerts, filmed in high definition video inside Christ Church Cathedral’s intimate and acoustically gorgeous Chapel of the New Jerusalem, will focus mainly on baroque chamber music with some repertoire spanning as late as the Early Romantic period.
