Recorda Borealis brings Baroque to Smithers

Recorda Borealis host a spectacular musical experience, Saturday April 7, at the Logpile Lodge, featuring Renaissance and Baroque music.

Locally acclaimed Recorda Borealis host another spectacular musical experience, Saturday April 7, at the Logpile Lodge,  with their new spring concert, featuring Renaissance and Baroque music.

Two years ago, after losing a powerful core viola player, Recorda Borealis knew they needed to fill the deep base sound so connected to their style.

Soon after, Ellen Hansen tried a few pieces with a base recorder.

It was clear the organ-sounding instrument was the deep base they were looking for.

It wasn’t long until Sharren Carrington also picked up the base recorder.

After a couple of performances they started to refine their powerful rhythms once again.

“We play strictly classical music and we have a certain following,” Wolfgang Loschberger said.

“So people might react to the spring and Easter themes.”

Eight years ago Recorda Borealis hosted a concert at the Logpile Lodge with a slightly different repertoire, with two flutes and violin.

This year two strings and five recorders offer a sound grounded in the sensation of spring blooms in the valley. Featuring soloists Kiri Daust, 13 on violin and Elaine Edmison as their soprano for the evening.

“The Logpile Lodge concert offers a beautiful ambience in a beautiful environment,” Loschberger said.

“The spring feeling is in the air, so we’ll also be playing Sacred music in order for Easter.”

The Concert starts at 2 p.m. Tickets are by donation at the door. All proceeds go towards funding the Northern Suzuki Workshop, July 3-5 in Smithers.
