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

About this event

From the edge of night to the edge of madness, the Blueridge Festival strikes a tempestuous note with three plush, rhapsodic works from the 20th century. Evocative music by Canadian doyenne of composition Alexina Louie sets the mood for Rebecca Clarke’s plaintive Dumka. The youthful yet towering Piano Quintet by the luminous Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina wraps up the journey to the dark side.

Organizer Blueridge Chamber Music Festival

Organizer of Music from the Edge @ Blueridge Chamber Fest 2021

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.
