Moose Warning - Ontario mini-Tour, March 27, 2013

Stephanie Miletic, Tour Manager

Everyone we have spoken to in Timmins is overjoyed that we are here. According to many here, the opportunities for students to experience live music in schools and have masterclasses are few and far between. I definitely take it for granted living in Toronto!

Tafelmusik on a mini-tour: Day 1

by Stephanie Miletic, Operations Manager

We had an early start to the tour with a direct flight to Timmins with Porter Airlines. The “mini”-tour group consists of Patricia Ahern, violin, John Abberger, oboe, and Margaret Gay, cello. The only time I had experienced Porter was seeing the plane while en route to the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute Picnic that always takes place on Toronto Island. We had some logistical challenges when planning this tour.
