On October 1 at Kelowna Forum (Ethel at Cawston), 2:00 pm, Kelowna luthier and early music specialist Clive Titmuss will be doing a TED-style talk about the evolution of the lute pre-historic times, using the turtles shell, to the contemporary lute revival. He’ll also be playing several of his own lutes to illustrate the style of the music played on them. Titmuss is an Executive Director of Friends of Early Music Studio, a group dedicated to performance and promotion of music written before 1900.

It’s part of a whole afternoon of similar talks called Classical Arts 101, celebrating BC Culture Days.


There’s plenty to interest everybody: dance, architecture, sponsorship of the arts, theatre and tea and cookies.
