An Il Seicento Cocktail and Mocktail Recipe, from Bartender Alana Nogueda

One of many advantages to virtual concerts is the privilege of enjoying your favourite libation in the comfort of your own home. And our next concert, Il Seicento, highlights the ambitious, experimental energy of the music scene in 17th-century Italy.

With those two points in mind, Tafelmusik collaborated with Alana Nogueda—part owner and Beverage Director of The Shameful Tiki Room Toronto—to design a cocktail created especially for Il Seicento. Just like our concert, this drink is ambitious and energetic, and is the perfect pairing to our musical program.

Celebrating Black History Month: Concerts and Resources

February is Black History Month: a time to learn, reflect, and participate in festivities and events that honour the legacy of Black people and their communities.

In our spirit of celebrating beauty through music, Tafelmusik has compiled a list of virtual concerts and musical events celebrating Black artistry and legacy. This list reflects events coordinated by our local Toronto communities, and our larger classical communities globally, but is in no way exhaustive: if you are organizing or aware of an event, please tell us at info@tafelmusik.org, and we will add your contribution.
