Ravencourt concert series returns

Ravencourt Bed and Breakfast, an eclectic straw-bale house in Passmore, will once again be hosting a series of house concerts

Jazz singer Laura Landsberg

Ravencourt Bed and Breakfast, an eclectic straw-bale house in Passmore, will once again be hosting a series of house concerts over the summer in their amazing inner courtyard.

If you were one of those fortunate enough to attend any of the performances last year, you will appreciate what a magical location this is to enjoy music. Admission is by donation and all proceeds go to the musicians. Refreshments will be available.

The season begins on Friday, May 31 with an intimate concert by well-known musicians Laura and Paul Landsberg. Laura is a jazz singer and music instructor whose latest CD, A Simple Twist, has been receiving rave reviews. Paul Landsberg is an accomplished jazz guitarist and music instructor, who will be returning from a tour of Europe just in time for this performance.

There are several more performances scheduled over the summer months. On Friday, July 5 classical pianist Donna Noton and violinist Rebecca Schellenberg will be journeying from Alberta to play everything from Brahms to Canadian fiddle tunes. Next up, on Friday, August 2, Attila Vural, a classically trained jazz guitarist from Switzerland will be strumming his talents in the courtyard. Then on Friday, August 23, pianist Maria Rapp and violinist Anke Steinmetz will be visiting from Germany to perform. There may even be a performance in September.

Ravencourt B&B can be found at 4615 Upper Passmore Road and is run by Dorothea Schlichting and Peter Hauser. Turn off Highway 6 at Passmore, cross the bridge and follow the signs to pure musical enjoyment. For more information phone 250-226-7801.
