It's All About That Verse...

I’m excited to present a showcase of songs, all with verses.  Some are exceptionally well known but the verse is not oft performed.  I’ll also be tapping into a few lesser known golden nuggets. My stellar ensemble includes Karel Roessingh on piano, Joey Smith on double bass and Kelby MacNayr on drums + special guests!  Tickets TBA

The Confession Stone - Songs of Mary

  • St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

I have been privileged to perform this work numerous times. “The Confession Stone" was commissioned for Maureen Forrester in 1966. It is "Seven Songs of Mary", depicting Christ from birth through crucifixion based on the poems of Owen Dobson. Maureen used to take copies of the score with her wherever she went to give to students who wanted to be coached. Here is a link to more information about the work http://www.galarecords.ca/forreste/fleming.htm. I am so looking forward to performing this gorgeous work once again along with my friends Marnie Setka-Mooney and Sara Partridge who will be performing Pergolesi's Stabat Mater at the same concert.

Admission by donation and please bring your lunch. All funds will be donated to the Victoria Hospice Bereavement Fund.
