Dear friends of the TCC,
he choir joins me in thanking you for helping us “make a fuss” of our golden anniversary season this past year! With half a century of early music performances under our belt, we’re now going forward as always with a strong commitment to our core repertoire. Yet in our st season we’ll be looking at it with “Fresh Perspectives,” daring to engage with less familiar repertoires and composers as well as presenting familiar music in innovative ways.
In November, we join with the celebrated Nathaniel Dett Chorale to see what musical fun can come from juxtaposing Baroque and Afrocentric styles. In December, we celebrate the Blessed Virgin with heartfelt compositions from long ago as well as from our own time. March brings a fresh look at Johann Rosenmüller, a seventeenth century master whose legacy has remained unfamiliar for too long. In April, our Toronto Chamber Consort singers offer a new take on the little-known and under-appreciated air de cour. Finally, in May we collaborate with new friends to explore the stylistic roots of Latin American music.
I invite you to join us as we continue our never-ending journey with the Baroque and Renaissance repertoire we love so dearly.
Warmly, Lucas Harris
