A new program from Alison Mackay. Directed by Elisa Citterio Following the success of Alison Mackay’s productions, The Galileo Project and Tales of Two Cities, comesSafe Haven. This multimedia concert of masterworks by Vivaldi, Corelli, Lully, and Bach portrays the influence of migration on the musical life of Europe—and equally of present-day Canada. The movement of refugees across 18th-century Europe changed and enriched both the economy and culture of major cities: French Huguenots could be found in Amsterdam, Scottish Catholics in Warsaw, Sephardic Jews in the cities of Northern Italy.

Recorder soloist, Alison Melville. Directed by Elisa Citterio 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.

Bach’s B-Minor Mass towers as one of the supreme pieces of music ever written and it’s a beloved work of Tafelmusik Choir and Orchestra. Whether you are a performer or listener, this piece captivates your heart and soul from the very opening notes of the Kyrie to the majestic close of the Dona nobis pacem. Time stands still as the energy of the Credo, beauty of the Benedictus, and glory of the Gratias inspire contemplation of life and the power of music.
