Event Archive - Winter Harp - a Celtic Christmas Celebration: Winter Harp
Fri. December 7th 2007 7:30 pm @ Alix Goolden Performance Hall (All Ages) 7:30 pm
Presented by: Victoria Conservatory Of Music
Musicians, in gorgeous medieval attire, perform a hauntingly beautiful collection of music from well-known carols to Celtic, medieval and even flamenco. Dozens of candles light the stage providing a backdrop for the golden Celtic and classical harps, drums, tambourines, temple bells, violin/fiddle and an assortment of rare 12th century instruments. Don't miss this magical journey into the heart of winter, the heart of Christmas. Winter Harp has been featured on numerous radio and television stations including CBC Radio, Bravo Television and CBC Television's prestigious Opening Night series. Rare instruments include the ethereal-sounding bass psaltery (the only one like it in the world), the 12th century organistrum (the other one like it in Canada is in the Museum of Man in Ottawa) and the nyckelharpa.
