We have some of the most talented musicians in the business, and beyond the concert stage, many of them lead fascinating lives.
One such musician is Tafelmusik Chamber Choir member Will Johnson, who's representing Canada as a member of the Canadian National Bouldering Team (ie. 'rock climbing') at three World Cup IFSC Events in Switzerland, India, and Austria in April and May of this year.
Will has been rock climbing for just over 20 years, and is currently ranked 10th in Canada, securing him a position on the Open Canadian National Team!
Members of Tafelmusik headed downtown to perform at the Four Seasons Centre as part of the Free Concert Series at the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre. With harpsichord in tow the musicians and staff braved TTC shutdowns and the snowy arrival of March to perform at a packed venue for fans of all ages.

So here we are, the first post on our shiny brand new blog, Breaking Baroque. First, thank you to all of you who voted on the blog's name - we ended up with three titles racing ahead - Tafel Talk, Bach Stage and Breaking Baroque were all top choices for you, and we settled on Breaking Baroque back here at Tafel Towers.
