Get to know Cecilia Livingston, composer

In our 2019/20 Season, we are exploring how "old" can meet "new." This theme runs across our season in many ways, including six short new works by living composers written to complement the programs.

We are delighted to introduce Cecilia Livingston, whose new work for wind sextet will premiere in Gone with the Winds this January.

Tafelmusik: Tell us a little about yourself, and how you started composing music.

Giving a Child the Gift of Music

Tafelmusik’s education concerts have introduced live baroque and classical music for free to many children. We work directly with schools from different communities across the GTA, who lack access to enhanced musical education programs, to ensure that all children can explore the magic of music in an engaging and interactive way. With the recent financial cuts in the public school education system, these opportunities for children are more precious than ever.
