A Grand Tour of Beer
Approximate running time: 2 hours
125 Front St
Nanaimo BC V9R 6Z4
Featuring musical performances by Michael Jarvis (harpsichord), Paul Luchkow (violin) and Sam Stadlen (viola da gamba). Hosted by Joe Wiebe (the Thirsty Writer).
Following its exciting debut in Victoria last fall, this unique “Baroque & Beer” event hits the road for a show in Nanaimo!
Join us in the Port Theatre lobby for a beer-soaked musical journey through five regions, each with its own unique tradition of classical music and brewing. Your host, Joe Wiebe, the Thirsty Writer, will introduce you to the featured beer from each country we visit, and then you will be get to sip and savour the beer while listening to musical performances by the Luchkow-Stadlen-Jarvis Trio: Victoria-based early music specialists Michael Jarvis and Paul Luchkow along with the London, UK-based viola da gambist Sam Stadlen.
There will be a special emphasis on audience participation through the inclusion of classical drinking songs. Dancing on the tables will not necessarily be discouraged…figuratively, not literally.
This is a special and unique event bringing together the two worlds of craft beer and classical music — and what a wonderful pairing that is!
