Music this week - August 1-7

The Vancouver Bach Festival has started! The Powell Street Festival is also happening this weekend, so there's lots to keep you busy. And Happy Pride!

Thursday CBC Musical Nooners continue with Desirée Dawson and the VBF offerings for today are Chopin Preludes featuring Byron Schenkman on fortepiano and the sold-out Faure Requiem

Friday Today Cousin Harley plays at the CBC stage and the VBF features Mozart String Trios (you read the interview with Marc Destrubé, yes?) in the afternoon and Bach Cantatas in the evening

Saturday Muzewest presents Voices of Cello featuring Ben Goheen and Chris Knopp, and the Powell Street Festival has numerous musical events happening throughout the day

Sunday head back to the Powell Street Festival because they have a different musical line-up today, plus you need more of that delicious takoyaki. Today is also Stephen Lochbaum's A Voyage with the Guitar and Little Chamber Music and Blueridge's Moonshine: Pierrot Lunaire at the Mountain View Cemetery.

Monday It's BC Day! Go and enjoy BC!

Tuesday Musical Nooner is Luke Wallace and VBF is back with Bach Clavierübung III – The Organ Mass (read more about the piece in my interview with Alexander Weimann) and an evening of Palestrina, Monteverdi & More: Song of Songs

Wednesday CBC's Outdoor Stage features Petunia and The Vipers and VBF presents Before Bach: 17th-Century Music for Strings & Winds while the Harmony Arts Fest Hot Jazz Hour features Don Stewart and then it's back to Vancouver for Handel Early Cantatas featuring soprano Amanda Forsythe
