Les Amusements de la Chambre will present The Soldier’s Tale, the third concert of their 2014/15 Season in Victoria, at the Church of St. John the Divine (1611 Quadra Street, Victoria) on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at 8:00 pm.

This program highlights the spectacular trio version of Igor Stravinsky’s Suite from L’Histoire du soldat, scored for piano, violin, and clarinet. This virtuosic work follows the tale of a soldier’s dealings with the devil, who trades his fiddle in exchange for an enchanted book. A variety of other pieces for piano, violin, and clarinet will be featured in the concert, including Utopia Machine II by Victoria-based composer Chedo Barone. Les Amusements de la Chambre, founded by keyboardist Katelyn Clark and violinist Emily Redhead, is delighted to welcome Vancouver-based clarinetist Sydney Tetarenko as a special guest for this concert.

Tickets: $25 general, $20 seniors, $10 students. Tickets available at the door, or in advance at Ivy’s Bookshop (2188 Oak Bay Avenue), and online at

Performers: Katelyn Clark (piano), Emily Redhead (violin), Sydney Tetarenko (clarinet)

Les Amusements de la Chambre is a unique Canadian chamber ensemble that specializes in the performance of music for early keyboard and strings. Founded by harpsichordist/pianist Katelyn Clark and violinist Emily Redhead during an artist residency at The Banff Centre in 2010, the ensemble explores repertoire from the seventeenth century to contemporary works of today. Based out of Victoria BC and Montréal QC, the ensemble collaborates with a variable pool of musicians in concert and frequently performs and commissions works by Canadian composers. Most notably, Les Amusements has distinguished itself through creative presentations of the eighteenth-century concert experience in alternative and intimate venues.

The ensemble has been presented by the Toronto Music Garden and Montreal’s Innovations en concert, and has received funding from the Canada Council for the Arts. Les Amusements is presenting its third season of chamber concerts in Victoria and the Gulf Islands during the 2014/15 season.
