Mister Dowland's Midnight
In 16th century England, melancholy wasn't only a state-of-mind or an attitude that caused one to be morose and contemplative, it was an entire fashion statement.  It was fashionable to "dwell in darkness" and allow the philosophical questions of life and love to torture the soul.  Mister Dowland's Midnight guides the listener through the festive and flirtatious hours of the early eve, to the dark and lonely hour of midnight and invokes those seductive, sorrowful, and aching thoughts that only emerge between sunset and daybreak.

This event is a collaboration between Finland's award winning ensemble, White Sparrow, Vancouver Gallery, Visual Space, and Vancouver-based jewelers: Patsy Kay Kolesar, Simone Richmond, and Su Foster.  On Saturday May 25 at 8pm, you are warmly invited to join us for a glass of wine and an exploration of Elizabethan melancholy through the lute-songs of the time, and through new jewelry inspired by this music.

About White Sparrow:

White Sparrow formed in 2011 as a collaboration between Canadian Mezzo-Soprano, Debi Wong, and Norwegian lutenist, Solmund Nystabakk.  The duo has presented a number of concerts in Finland, Norway, and Sweden, appearing on the Stockholm Early Music Festival Concert Series, as well as the MODUS festival in Oslo.  At the end of their debut season, White Sparrow, was awarded first place at the NORDEM EAR-ly competition for young early music ensembles in the nordic countries.  White Sparrow is dedicated to cultivating an interest in lute and vocal music from the Medieval period to the early Baroque through innovative programming, dynamic performing, and artistic collaboration.  For more information, please visit:
