Les Amusements de la Chambre will present Händel’s Salon, the first concert of their 2014/15 Season in Victoria, at the Church of Truth (111 Superior Street, Victoria) on Friday, September 19, 2014 at 8:00 pm. This concert highlights music by George Frideric Händel and includes a selection of Händel’s English songs (HWV 228), a fascinating group of works that offer a glimpse into London’s rich and varied musical life of the early eighteenth century. These beautiful works are rarely heard in live performance in Canada, so this is an early music experience that is not to be missed! Les Amusements de la Chambre, founded by keyboardist Katelyn Clark and violinist Emily Redhead, is delighted to welcome Vancouver-based soprano Dorothea Hayley as a special guest for this concert.

Tickets: $25 general, $20 seniors, $10 students. Tickets available at the door, or in advance at Ivy’s Bookshop (2188 Oak Bay Avenue), Munro’s Books (1108 Government Street), and online at http://www.amusementsdelachambre.com.

Les Amusements de la Chambre is a unique Canadian chamber ensemble that specializes in the performance of music for early keyboard and strings. Founded by harpsichordist Katelyn Clark and violinist Emily Redhead during an artist residency at The Banff Centre in 2010, the ensemble explores repertoire from the seventeenth century to contemporary works of today. Based out of Victoria BC and Montréal QC, the ensemble collaborates with a variable pool of musicians in concert and frequently performs and commissions works by Canadian composers. Most notably, Les Amusements has distinguished itself through creative presentations of the eighteenth-century concert experience in alternative and intimate venues. The ensemble has been presented by the Toronto Music Garden and Montreal’s Innovations en concert, and has received funding from the Canada Council for the Arts. Les Amusements will be presenting its third season of chamber concerts in Victoria and the Gulf Islands during the 2014/15 season.
