Enjoy a full spectacle of organ music, video visuals, and stimulating narration featuring commentary by CBC’s Bob McDonald – science guru, host of CBC’s Quirks & Quarks, and author of several books – topped off with exquisite music played by Jenny Vincent on the organ. Audiences will be enraptured by this fascinating, breathtaking, and entertaining programme, wrapped up with spectacular visuals on large screens. This is an event not to be missed.
The first performance on Vancouver Island last year sold out and received ecstatic praise from concert-goers. Bob McDonald, host of Quirks & Quarks  brings science to over 500,000 devoted CBC listeners weekly. He also is CBC’s science correspondent for The National and hosts Heads Up, a series for children. McDonald’s most recent book is Canadian Space Walkers : Hadfield, MacLean and Williams Remember the Ultimate High Adventure.
Jenny Vincent is organist at Knox United Church in Parksville.  She has played an eclectic mix of instruments over her career, ranging from the iconic Hammond B-3 jazz organ to a Casavant Frères 3000+ pipe organ. Jenny has performed throughout Canada and the United States.  “Jenny Vincent is a gifted organist with skill and dedication, who brings music to sparkling life”  ( David Drinkell, Christ Church Cathedral, Fredericton ).  It is Jenny’s passion to make the organ a valued and accepted musical instrument in our mainstream society.
