Gloria Re-Release: A Message from Ivars Taurins

By Ivars Taurins, Choir Director

For the past 37 years, I have had the great privilege and pleasure to explore and share my passion for choral music with the remarkable group of singers known as the Tafelmusik Chamber Choir. In 2006, we opened our 25th anniversary season with a gala concert of music that epitomizes the choir and its characteristic sound and spirit, and we were delighted that CBC Records documented this special celebration by releasing a CD entitled Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Get to know Brandon Chui, viola

This season, violist Brandon Chui takes up his position as the newest core member of the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra. Brandon had a busy freelance career on modern viola when his interest in period playing inspired him to attend the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer and Winter Institutes. We are thrilled to welcome him aboard!

We know you as a violist, but you first studied violin. What drew you to the violin?
