Raven Baroque comes to Willows Beach

Grab a blanket and a picnic and enjoy some great acoustics from this 14-piece band Aug. 13

Arts and Culture Week in Oak Bay kicks off with a free evening of Raven Baroque Aug. 13 at Willows Park.

The 14-piece band has been seen performing pretty much everywhere in the Greater Victoria Area, from Legislature Lawn, Centennial Square, to Mt. Tolmie reservoir, Bastion Square, Cameron Bandshell, Market Square, among others.

Adding to their visual touches by tradition, all the musicians will be dressed in Renaissance and Baroque-era costumes, playing concertos by Vivaldi, Handel, Corelli and other favourite composers from the Baroque era. The band is well-known for its young musicians from University of Victoria, who play solos with this unconducted orchestra.

Concert at Willows runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Be sure to bring blankets and a picnic.
