A Tafelmusik Milestone: Handel's Saul

Handel's Saul

It is with a sense of great anticipation and excitement that we present Handel's epic oratorio Saul later this season. Over the years Tafelmusik has made the artistic commitment to explore Handel's great oratorios. We've shared the glorious music of Solomon, Deborah, Israel in Egypt, Hercules, and of course Messiah with our "Tafel-audience". And now we fulfill a personal dream of mine to present his most lavish oratorio, Saul.

Tafelmusik continues to bask in rising ticket sales and financial strength

From Musical Toronto, by John Terauds
 
No need to add gloss or massage the news at the Tafelmusik annual general meeting, which was held last night. It was all good news as ticket revenues as well as the endowment grew at Toronto’s debt-free period-instrument orchestra.
 
The 2013 annual report boasts the organization’s 13th consecutive operating surplus — slightly more than $88,000 on a total budget of $5.4 million. Ticket sales grew by almost $200,000 from last year’s $1.6 million.
