Winter Harp returns this December as part of nine-city BC concert tour, with seven performances in the Lower Mainland.
Over 26 years, this acclaimed ensemble has become renowned for delivering beautiful, soul-stirring performances. Concerts are “must-see” events on holiday calendars, with many audience members returning year after year – passing the Winter Harp tradition on to new generations. What has audiences returning again and again is the sheer wonder of the concert experience that captures the joyful spirit of the season.
On stage, Winter Harpʼs outstanding musicians and singers, clad in colorful medieval attire, perform a collection of music ranging from familiar carols to Celtic and medieval carols. The hauntingly-beautiful music features a fascinating combination of harps, drums, temple bells, flutes, bass flute, violin/fiddle and an assortment of rare medieval instruments. These include the bass psaltery, organistrum, hurdy-gurdy and nyckelharpa.
This year's ensemble of outstanding artists includes Roger Helfrick (lead vocals, harp, recorder), Lauri Lyster (percussion, vocals), Jeff Pelletier (flute, bass flute, hurdy-gurdy, vocals), Lani Krantz (classical harp, vocals), Hayley Farenholtz (folk harp, vocals), Bruce Henczel (nyckelharpa, violin/fiddle, viola, bass psaltery, percussion, vocals) and Adam Henderson (narrator, percussion, organistrum). Lori Pappajohn is the ensembleʼs director.
Lower Mainland concerts: Dec. 11 & 12 Blue Shore Financial Performance Centre in North Van. Dec. 15 the Act in Maple Ridge. Dec. 18 Holy Trinity Cathedral, New Westminster. Dec. 20 Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver.
