“Gorgeous voices singing music they know inside and out, along with period music played on a historically-inspired organ…”

–Rosemary Ponnekanti, Tacoma News Tribune

Join Canonici for our last concert of the season at Grace Lutheran Church in Tacoma for a performance of English sacred music by well-known English composer John Dunstable and his lesser known peers, Walter Frye, John Plummer and John Bedyngham. 

Canonici will be joined by Jonathan Wohlers, playing selections from the Mulliner Book and other English collections on the beautiful Fritts organ. Learn a little more about the organ at intermission, and please join us for a reception after the concert.

Tickets are $12 – $15 and can be purchased at the door or at Brown Paper Tickets.
