Baroque Favourites

BESSI (Baroque Ensemble of Salt Spring Island)

This program was filmed on Feb 12th, 2021 at Beaver Point Hall on Salt Spring Island. BESSI arose from a need for local musicians to keep playing during the pandemic. The number of players was kept small; in this way we could still play music together, while following the required provincial health protocols. The program includes repertoire by some of our favourite Baroque composers. These pieces all include lively dance movements, which have helped help raise our spirits during these times.
