Violin tells story

The fourth performance in the arts council's 2012/13 season, The Magnificent Seven, takes place on Monday, Jan. 21.

The fourth performance in the arts council’s 2012/13 season, The Magnificent Seven, takes place on Monday, Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Mennonite Church in Burns Lake.

Calvin Dyck presents The Golden Violin, an evening of classical and popular music with piano accompaniment by Betty Suderman. Calvin plays an instrument crafted by Dutch master violin-maker Johannes Cuypers in 1807.

The show will be a musical tour of the places the violin has traveled since 1807, and the music it has played.

The first stop in the musical journey is Amsterdam, followed by Dusseldorf, Venice, Paris, New York and modern-day Canada. Along the way, Calvin and Betty perform traditional classics from Mozart to Brahms, and the more modern music of Copland and Gershwin.

The show includes costumes, props and a visual backdrop to the music being played.

Tickets are still available for this performance at Process 4 circle arts Gallery (250-692-3434).  Tickets will also be available at the door.
