The internationally acclaimed organ virtuoso David Briggs, currently the Artist in Residence for New York City’s Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, will provide a live, improvised accompaniment on Christ Church Cathedral’s magnificent Wolff organ. A performance not to be missed! Co-presented with the Royal Canadian College of Organists. Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/festival-of-the-dead-phantom-of-the-opera-tickets-425225710547
The Passion of Joan of Arc Tuesday, November 1, 7.30pm
Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1928 film The Passion of Joan of Arc, starring Maria Falconetti, is a powerful, moving work, and one of the greatest accomplishments ever put on film. Victoria’s Vox Humana Chamber Choir, under the baton of their new conductor David Stratkauskas, will accompany this silent masterpiece with Richard Einhorn’s score Voices of Light. Prepare to be swept away by a deft intermingling of film and music in one of Victoria’s most beautiful spaces.
