Chamber orchestra Thirteen Strings, under the direction of Kevin Mallon, is delighted to announce that Bach and Handel will finally get to meet each other in person on Friday May 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Dominion-Chalmers. These great composers will share the same stage for the first time in the guise of two actors. Music repertoire includes Bach Brandenburg Concerto # 3 and #5, and Handel’s Concerto Grosso #4. Audience members will also witness the dramatic conversation between these two great artists of the Baroque era, who both suffered from eye problems and were treated by the same controversial Dr. John Taylor*.

Enhancing this evening’s “The Subject is Light” theme is the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the founding of The Canadian National Institute for the Blind. Audience members can visit a special exhibition in the church’s Woodside Hall before and after the concert.

Tickets at $10-$45 are available at The Leading Note, Compact Music and Books on Beechwood and by contacting info@thirteenstrings.ca or calling 613-738-7888. Visit: www.thirteenstrings.ca
