Enjoy a full spectacle of organ music, video visuals, and stimulating narration featuring commentary by CBC’s Bob McDonald – science guru, host of CBC’s Quirks & Quarks, and author of several books – topped off with exquisite music played by Jenny Vincent on the organ. Audiences will be enraptured by this fascinating, breathtaking and entertaining program, wrapped up with spectacular visuals on two large screens. This show is not to be missed.
The first performance on Vancouver Island last year sold out and received ecstatic praise from concert-goers.
Bob McDonald, host of Quirks & Quarks, brings science to over 500,000 devoted CBC listeners weekly. He also is CBC’s science correspondent for The National and hosts Heads Up, a series for children. McDonald’s most recent book is Canadian Space Walkers : Hadfield, MacLean and Williams Remember the Ultimate High Adventure.
Jenny Vincent has played an eclectic mix of instruments over her career, ranging from the iconic Hammond B-3 jazz organ to a Casavant Frères 3000+ pipe organ. She has performed as a soloist throughout Canada and the United States. It is Jenny’s passion to show off the organ as a versatile and contemporary musical instrument in our mainstream society.
