Event Notes


Time is an Island - 25 Years of Salt Spring Chamber Music

It all started with the opening of ArtSpring. On August 9, 2000, an inaugural chamber music concert included Tracy Dahl, soprano, Mario Bernardi piano, Paula Kiffner cello, Hiroko Kagawa and Peter Visentin violins, and David Visentin on viola. Each summer, for the last 25 years (aside from a couple covid years), we have been bringing great artists, great music and great students to Salt Spring Island to make great music together. So many incredible works of music, and so many first opportunities to hear rare musical finds. For almost all the past years we have had the truly wonderful musicianship of violinist Kai Gleusteen and pianist Catherine Ordronneau grace our stage with their special artistry.

This year marks the 25th year we have been bringing chamber music to Salt Spring Island and we are once again bringing together Kai and Catherine and Hiroko and David, together with cellist Amy Laing, to perform some treasures from the past and some new rarities of great beauty. The island has been its own unique time capsule in creating space for us to make very meaningful music together for so many years.

The time has gone quickly and this year, the 25th, we wish to celebrate the rare treasure that isArtSpring and our wish to bring it the gift of two very special, and individually unique, concerts.
