Arts in Brief: Salsa plus baroque in Langley concert

A Montreal ensemble will perform a program highlighting the music of the 17th century Latin world.

Baroque with a twist of lively salsa is being served up in a concert at Langley Community Music School’s Rose Gellert Hall on Friday.

Ensemble Caprice of Montreal will perform a world-renowned, innovative, and adventuresome program entitled Salsa Baroque, said artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann.

The show, which starts at 7:30 p.m., highlights the music of Latin America and Spain of the 17th and 18th centuries. Tickets and information available at 604-534-2848.

Writers share

Three crime writers are coming together Saturday, at the Langley Chapters to sign books but also to share tips and ideas with likeminded scribes.

“As a writer, I used to be asked about my characters, or when my book would come out. Lately, the questions are more likely to be about how to get an agent, or what genre sells best,” said mystery writer Allan J. Emerson.

“Why the change? It’s because a surprising number of readers want to be writers also, and they’re actually making it happen,” he said, noting that he’s one of three authors who will be at Chapters from 2 to 5 p.m. He’ll be joined by Debra Purdy Kong and Cathy Ace.

Teacher sings

Langley choral singer Grant Wutzke, a member of the Vancouver Chamber Choir and private music teacher, will be part of an historic concert at the Chan Centre for Performing Arts at UBC on Friday.

The Vancouver Chamber Choir and Seattle-based Pacific MusicWorks to present one of history’s most celebrated compositions of all time – Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610.

The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets $17.50 and available at or 604-822-2697.
