Join us as we welcome Early Music Vancouver to St. Anselm's again. Our program features Christina Hutten on harpsichord and Chloe Meyers on violin, regaling us with an hour of music and conversation. These world class performers will be offering an amazing program of music.
Doors open at 6 for a 7pm show, followed by a reception and opportunity to meet Christina and Chloe. Admission is by donation at the door ($20 suggested).
Unable to make this Saturday? We have another concert later this spring - mark your calendars for May 18 when we will welcome Capella Borealis at 7pm.
The Spirit(us) program and connection to Early Music Vancouver is made possible through the generosity of Dr. & Mrs Drance, faithfully connected to our parish for many years.
