Artemisia Duo | Amphitheatre Summer Series

Join us in the Roseline Sturdy Amphitheatre for our Summer Series. We’ve got a mix of entertaining performances lined up throughout the summer.

June 20: Artemisia Duo

Formed in 2015, Artemisia Duo is an ensemble comprised of flutist Emily Richardson and pianist Susan Xia. The name Artemisia draws upon the root “Artemis”, the Greek goddess of wild animals and the moon. It also has a long history in the arts as the name of an accomplished female painter in the Baroque period. In addition, the word Artemisia combines segments of each of the members’ names with the word “art”, signifying their collaborative approach to creating music together. Artemisia Duo has performed as part of the UBC Tunes at Noon Series, VSO Day of Music, and the Concerts in Care program in Vancouver. Emily and Susan are committed to increasing community engagement in the arts and perform outreach concerts in order to give back to the community. While they enjoy playing various genres and styles of music, they are especially passionate about making classical music accessible to all audiences.

Shameless Buns food truck will be on-site and alcoholic beverages can be purchased from a cash bar.
