In Memory of Jeanne Lamon

February 26 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- by donation

A concert in memory of legendary baroque violinist Jeanne Lamon, who touched thousands of lives with her exceptional musicianship, leadership, warmth, and generosity in Canada and abroad. The music of Bach was close to Lamon’s heart through her life, and one of her final musical endeavours was the transcription of Bach’s otherworldly and monumental Chaconne in D minor. This intimate programme –curated by Lamon’s partner in music and life, Christina Mahler – remembers Lamon through the Chaconne and other transcendent music by Bach, interspersed with poetry read by the Canadian author, Kit Pearson.

 

EMSI is partnering with Victoria Baroque to present a livestream of this concert.

The video will be freely accessible, but donations in support of these talented musicians are greatly appreciated.
