The Romance is Palpable at the Bach Choir’s Valentine’s Cabaret – Romance and charm abound at the Vancouver Bach Choir’s annual fundraising concert: Behind the Keys
Vancouver, BC: Celebrate this Valentine’s Day with the ultimate in romantic music: the Vancouver Bach Choir’s presentation of Behind the Keys, an intimate cabaret concert of classical love songs.
Vancouver Bach Choir Maestro Leslie Dala will be at the piano, leading an evening of romantic favourites. He will be joined by two celebrated Vancouver musicians: Joseph Elworthy, cello, and Robyn Driedger-Klassen, soprano. A Burnaby native, Robyn Driedger-Klassen has been hailed internationally as “outstanding in her impassioned embodiment of the drama” (London Times). Joseph Elworthy, cello, is the CEO and President of the Vancouver Academy of Music, and a lauded cellist who has performed as a featured soloist on stages across the globe including Alice Tully Hall, Suntory Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Library of Congress, and Sejong Hall.
These three musicians will come together to create an evening imbued with romance. Among other lyrical love songs, the program will include Beethoven Variations on “Bei Männern welche Liebe fühlen”from Mozart’s Magic Flute, William Bolcom’s “Amor”, and Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise.”
Audience members can sit back and relax at a table with friends or loved ones and enjoy light refreshments and a complimentary beverage. Festive Valentine’s Day fare will be served, including the most romantic of beverages: sparkling wine.
All proceeds from the evening go towards supporting the choral education and performance programs of the Vancouver Bach Choir. A perfect evening of Valentine’s treats for everyone.
