Island Baroque Ensemble plays in Cumberland

Cumberland United Church, with its much appreciated acoustics and its historic pipe organ, will be the setting for a concert of Baroque music featuring the Island Baroque Ensemble on Saturday Feb. 20 at 7:30 p.m.

“Our musicians are coming from Kelowna, Comox, and Parksville to perform a short tour of the mid-island. We look forward to again performing this wonderful music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods of musical history,” says leader Marjorie Cullerne.

Each performer brings something special to the group.  Cuyler Page, on recorder, is currently an exhibition designer at the Kelowna museum. Helena Jung, from Comox, is a well-known cellist who has performed internationally, and has directed and played with her ensemble of five cellos. John Nelson is an organist and teacher. He has directed and accompanied secular and religious choirs in the mid-island area. Marjorie Cullerne, leader and violinist, has performed with the Vancouver Island Symphony since 1995.

“For this tour we are looking forward to seeing our friends in the audience, and making new ones. I am personally very pleased to be working with these wonderful musicians,” said Marjorie.

Tickets are $15, students $5. To reserve tickets, phone 250-400-7800. Leave a voicemail with your name, phone number and the number of tickets you require.
