Event description
The Blueridge Festival returns to live concerts with four centuries of chamber music masterworks—all composed by women!

About this event

Blueridge partners with the Polygon Gallery to present one of Canada’s most adventurous performers: the trailblazing Montreal-based Baroque cellist Elinor Frey. Known for the “honest, reflective beauty of her music making” and her “incredibly sweet” tone, Frey dazzles in virtuosic music ranging from the verve and tenderness of Baroque pathfinder Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, to evocative contemporary works by Lisa Streich, Linda Catlin Smith, to an insouciant set of variations on the beloved tune “La Follia” by Frey herself. Inspiring music in an inspiring setting.

*Entrance to the Polygon Gallery is by donation*

Organizer Blueridge Chamber Music Festival

Organizer of Elinor Frey @ Blueridge Chamber Fest // Polygon Gallery

The Blueridge Chamber Music Festival offers innovative programming and unforgettable performances in a relaxed and welcoming setting. Praised by the Vancouver Sun as “ever-inventive” and “not afraid to take some pretty big chances,” Blueridge presents a characteristic blend of beloved chamber music classics and intriguing new music. The North Shore News calls it "not what people usually expect from a chamber music festival."

At Blueridge, we envision a society where people take time to listen together with open minds. We believe chamber music has the power to form community through collaboration and by inspiring empathy, respect and attention to each other.
