Concert

Toronto Consort ORFEO

We cap off this season of celebration with the world’s first great opera, and one of the most moving love stories of all time, Claudio Monteverdi’s masterpiece Orfeo in concert. For this grand finale we have assembled an international team of singers and players, starring the fabulous English tenor Charles Daniels in the title role, and the Montreal-based early brass ensemble La Rose des Vents.

Toronto Consort Fantasticus

As our guest ensemble, The Toronto Consort is proud to present Quicksilver, the hot new ensemble of virtuoso players of early Baroque music. At one of their recent concerts, The New York Times reported that “the audience was on its feet cheering and hooting as if it were at a rock show.” Fantasticus features extravagant music from 17th-century Germany for violins, sackbut, dulcian and continuo, with works by Buxtehude, Bertali, Weckmann and Schmeltzer.

Concert by Ensemble "Võlukeeled/Magic Strings" From Estonia

On Friday, March 2nd at 7pm at Tartu College, the ensemble Võlukeeled/Magic Strings (Estonia) will be performing a concert. The violin ensemble was established at the Old Town Music School in 2012. There are currently 10 children and youth aged 10-14 in the ensemble. The children have learned violin through the Suzuki method. This smaller ensemble including the performers: Ingmar Kiviloo, Karoliina Kuppart, and Ursula Melsas will be directed by teacher Tereza Smerling-Heinsaar. On the piano: Susanna Liisa Onoper.

A Recorder Romp

Explode your preconceptions of the recorder with this concert of delightful and daring concertos.

If you thought the recorder was just an instrument for school concerts, think again. Virtuoso performer Alison Melville joins a select chamber group of Tafelmusik musicians to present the baroque recorder. Radiant, whimsical, melancholic, fun, bright—this is the nerdy recorder of your youth, but restored to its original glory.
