A harpsichordist on Vashon

Internationally acclaimed harpsichordist Jillon Stoppels Dupree will make her Island debut at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 22, at Vashon’s Church of the Holy Spirit. The concert, with Paul Swenson on organ, is a fundraiser to benefit the music ministry of the church, which is currently in the midst of celebrating its centenary as a house of worship. There is a $20 suggested donation. Dupree, a star in the world of baroque music, has performed in cities including London, Amsterdam and New York. Her career as a recording artist has included a highly praised performance with Northwest Chamber Orchestra of a concerto for harpsichord and chamber orchestra by Philip Glass.
