Here’s a unique evening out for music lovers.
The Gallery at Queen’s Park is continuing its gallery sessions concerts on Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 6:30 p.m., with a performance by La Modestine.
The group is made up of four West Coast musicians who specialize in the music of the 17th and 18th centuries: Marc Destrubé and Linda Melsted on baroque violin, Natalie Mackie on viola da gamba and Michael Jarvis on harpsichord and organ.
They’re presenting From the Düben Collection: Music that deserves to be heard. The Düben Collection contains more than 2,000 manuscripts of 17th- and early 18th-century music by more than 300 European composers, collected by members of the Düben family and donated to Uppsala University in Sweden in 1732. For this concert, the quartet will play a selection of rarely heard gems from the collection, including work by Buxtehude, Becker and Reincken.
And while you’re at it, save the date for February’s Gallery Sessions. The Adele M. Wilding Trio will perform on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m.
