As summer recedes and the autumn offers its harvest and bouquet of colours, the Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra begins a wonderful new season of music-making – starting with a fall program, “Baroque Bouquet”. This all-Baroque program features guest organist, Jenny Vincent, performing Concerto for Organ, Op. 4, No. 2 by Händel and collaborating with Music Director, Karl Rainer, to play Vivaldi’s Concerto in D Minor for Organ and Violin. In addition, the Orchestra will play a strikingly varied repertoire, including Six Pieces by Lully, Concerto Grosso No. 5 by Händel, Corelli’s Christmas Concerto No. 8, Symphonie XI, No. 2 by Le Chevalier de Saint-George, and Pergolesi’s Concertino in F Minor.
Jenny Vincent has performed as a soloist throughout Canada and the United States and has enthusiastically shared the stage with other musicians, choirs and colleagues from coast to coast. In 2010, she performed the complete organ works of J. S. Bach in a series of eighteen concerts in St. John’s, NL.
Since her arrival in the Oceanside area, Jenny has amply demonstrated her eagerness to explore many genres of music, from Bach to Deep Purple, as witnessed by audiences in a recent inaugural concert for the new organ at Knox. Her expressive playing tells a story - she brings to life the meaning in the music for all to enjoy and appreciate. It is with this versatility and passion that Jenny strives to make the organ a valued and accepted contemporary musical instrument.
