Arts in Brief: Salsa plus baroque in Langley concert

A Montreal ensemble will perform a program highlighting the music of the 17th century Latin world.

Baroque with a twist of lively salsa is being served up in a concert at Langley Community Music School’s Rose Gellert Hall on Friday.

Ensemble Caprice of Montreal will perform a world-renowned, innovative, and adventuresome program entitled Salsa Baroque, said artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann.

Writers share

Three crime writers are coming together Saturday, at the Langley Chapters to sign books but also to share tips and ideas with likeminded scribes.

“As a writer, I used to be asked about my characters, or when my book would come out. Lately, the questions are more likely to be about how to get an agent, or what genre sells best,” said mystery writer Allan J. Emerson.

“Why the change? It’s because a surprising number of readers want to be writers also, and they’re actually making it happen,” he said, noting that he’s one of three authors who will be at Chapters from 2 to 5 p.m. He’ll be joined by Debra Purdy Kong and Cathy Ace.
