Tafelmusik winds take centre stage in the final concert of our new Close Encounters series. Germany is our destination, a country with a rich and varied musical heritage. Joining our quartet will be soprano Ellen McAteer.

Looking to delve deeper into the music? This year we are excited to present a brand new series of hour-long concerts, presented in an informal style with introductions from the musicians. You’ll discover new aspects of the repertoire in the intimate setting of Heliconian Hall and The Temerty Theatre at the TELUS Centre, both in Toronto’s stylish Yorkville district, all complete with coffee and treats.
