"Music in Flight"

“Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything.” – Attributed to Plato.

Join the TCC as we soar on the wings of early music in 2023–24! In October, we lift up England’s most brilliant Renaissance composer in his anniversary year. In December, we take some brilliant young singers from the Bach Children’s Chorus under our wing as we consider the Holy Family as refugees in flight. In March, we will be uplifted by angelic music from an Italian convent. We complete our season in May gliding through the centuries on the words of Shakespeare. And, at our spring fundraiser, we’ll give in to our “impulse to soar” in continuing our research into blind composers.

Spring fundraiser: An Impulse to Soar

Wednesday, June 5, 2024 — Doors open at 7 pm, music at 7:30 pm @ Heliconian Hall

“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.” – Helen Keller

In May 2023, the TCC presented its program "Musical Vision" about blind musicians and composers who did not let their visual handicap prevent them from composing and performing great music. Such was the richness of material found on this topic that more of it will be presented in our 2024 fundraiser to support the Toronto Chamber Consort section lead program. Our intimate song evening will feature German lute songs, Austrian lieder, lute solos from Italy and Spain, and even modinhas played on the streets of 19th century Rio de Janiero by the mixed-race Brazilian Joaquim Manoel da Câmara.



Please join us in 2024–25 for "Music's Mystery" — Details coming soon!

Next season, the TCC will explore the mysterious powers that only music possesses: to express that which cannot be expressed with words, to influence our thoughts and emotions, and even to change the way our brain thinks and remembers. Indeed, music exists precisely in the meeting place of our minds and our spirits. Watch your inbox for our season announcement, coming soon.
