CANCELED: Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra
Sunday, March 7, 2021 at 3:30 pm
Music for feasting… Tafelmusik is a name that for almost four decades has been synonymous with dynamic and engaging performances that provide feasts for the soul. Masters of transporting audiences to the worlds of their period instruments, these musicians constantly seek ways to illuminate the vibrant artistry of the Baroque era.
The Toronto-based Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra has performed in over 350 cities in 32 countries and amongst its numerous honors, the most distinctive may well be the naming of asteroid “197856 Tafelmusik.”
A reviewer for The Globe & Mail wrote that “[The] audience just stayed put, unwilling or unable to leave … I’ve never quite seen anything like it.”
