Remembering Jeanne Lamon

From all of us at Tafelmusik, we want to thank you immensely for the outpouring of love regarding the recent passing of our Music Director Emerita, Jeanne Lamon, C.M. O.Ont. While our grief is immense, it is clear through the thousands of messages we’ve received—from musicians, organizations, students, and patrons—that Jeanne’s life touched so many people in profound and lasting ways.
