When we launched Tafelmusik’s 2019/20 season at Koerner Hall last September, none of us could have imagined that six months later, the stage would be dark, our offices would be shuttered, and that we would be announcing the cancellation of several concerts. In a matter of just a few days in mid-March, Tafelmusik musicians and staff were quick to pivot their collective energy towards this new reality by creating moments of joy for our followers to share online.
As we enter our third month of isolation and social distancing, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide you, our donors and members, with an update on what we’ve been able to accomplish in this time and how we’re preparing for the future.
Most importantly, I want to say thank you for your continued support. We miss you, and appreciate the daily messages of hope and encouragement.
We chatted with Paulette Tavormina, the photographer behind the aesthetical image for A Handel Celebration. In keeping with our 2019/20 Season theme of “old meets new” we are thrilled to share the work of some of Canada’s and the world’s most exciting contemporary artists as part of our season campaign. These stunning images were chosen to complement both the season theme and the theme of each individual concert.
