Workshop & Festival
May 5-13, 2018
The 2018 Festival & Workshop was a great success. Watch this space for reports and information on next year's event.
This 8 day festival of baroque music featured a workshop for talented amateur singers and instrumentalists tutored by acclaimed specialists in L'Orfeo (1607) by Claudio Monteverdi, the earliest opera regularly performed today. At the end of the week, on May 12, there was a concert performance by participants.
The Festival also featured a Baroque Performing Arts Extravaganza by the Historical Performance Ensemble, a community concert, a concert by the workshop instructors, lectures related to the music, and an exhibition. The event is sponsored by Denman Works! (www.denmanworks.com www.visitdenmanisland.ca).
