Giambori Quartet on Mayne: Jul 19 & 20

Giambori comes to Mayne, Saturna and Galiano again this summer! Giambori, the name of a chamber music festival founded by Chris Redsell in Tuscany in the 1990s, is now an Islands event.

Chris, who moved to Mayne Island a year-and-a-half ago, is continuing the tradition here for all Islanders to enjoy. Last summer, the Giambori Festival was hugely popular, as prominent Canadian and English musicians played a series of concerts on Galiano, Mayne and Saturna.

This year the quartet will be joined by a fifth musician. The program includes pieces by Elgar, Beethoven’s Op18 no 1 – and Schubert’s two cello quintet!

The quartet will rehearse from Tuesday, July 12 to Friday, July 15 on Mayne. Individuals who would like to attend a rehearsal are welcome. Please call Chris at (250) 885-0365 for more information.

Galiano Island – Saturday, July 16 at South Hall.
Saturna Island – Sunday, July 17 at the Community Hall.
