That's a wrap! A look back at 2020/21

As summer deepens and we look back over the past season, the word gratitude jumps to mind. Gratitude for the joy and beauty that music brings. Gratitude for the support of our donors and audience members. Gratitude for the dedication and commitment of our musicians, staff, and board. And gratitude for those whose passionate leadership paved the way for Tafelmusik to thrive for more than four decades.

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.
