Tango Meets Baroque

Mustard Seed Street Church and Living Edge team up for an evening of inspiring strings with former concertmaster of the Victoria Symphony

The Mustard Seed Street Church and Living Edge – a local not-for-profit that distributes fresh food in the Quadra Village – are excited to kick off their first-ever collaborative fundraiser on Nov. 18 at the Alix Goolden Performance Hall.

Tango Meets Baroque is an evening of inspiring strings with Grammy Award nominee violin virtuoso Pablo Diemecke – former concertmaster of the Victoria Symphony, the DieMahler Ensemble and guests.

“It’s exciting to join forces with The Mustard Seed both in our efforts to alleviate hunger in Victoria, and in our efforts to engage the public in that mission. Tango Meets Baroque promises to be a tantalizing show. We’re thrilled to feature an artist of the caliber of Pablo Diemecke and his ensemble,” said Robbie May, chairperson of the Board of Directors of Living Edge.

The public is invited to come out and meet Neil van Heerden, Pastor of Living Edge, and Bruce Curtiss, The Mustard Seed’s new executive director, at a pre-show meet & greet and silent auction at 6.30 p.m. on Nov. 18.

The show starts at 7.30. Tickets – $30 advance, $35 door – are available online through ticketfly.com, or at the VCM box office, Ivy’s Bookshop, The Mustard Seed, Christian Book & Music, Long & McQuade or Tanner’s Books in Sidney.
