Toronto, April 12, 2016 … With its nine JUNOs, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra outranks some of Canada’s best-known artists in the awards category. Or to quote the Globe & Mail, “Don’t turn to Rihanna for a hip performance, Tafelmusik has that covered in the classics.” The Orchestra’s annual gala fundraising event, Tafelmusik’s Baroque Feast on Monday, May 2, 2016, at the King Edward Hotel, highlights the success of one of the country’s biggest musical exports.

Tafelmusik’s Baroque Feast is one of the Orchestra’s major fundraising events of the season, and proceeds directly support Tafelmusik’s vision to be a centre of excellence in period performance. The evening will be a feast for the senses, with live performances by Tafelmusik and guests, and a mouth-watering menu of culinary delights set against an elegant backdrop.

Tafelmusik’s Baroque Feast highlights:

·         Cocktail reception and á la carte dinner in the Vanity Fair Ballroom

·         Performances by Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and special guests Voodoo Raha & Speedy Wax

·         JUNO Selfie Station: guests are invited to take selfies holding Tafelmusik’s JUNO Awards

·         Live and Silent Auctions

·         Raffle

Founded in 1979, Tafelmusik is one of the world’s leading period performance ensembles. The orchestra performs more than 50 concerts each year at home in Toronto, and an intensive schedule of international appearances —32 countries and counting — means that Tafelmusik ranks as Canada’s busiest touring orchestra. The coming season sees Tafelmusik on the road for more than six weeks, with tours to China, Korea, France, and the United States.

Tafelmusik’s discography of 80-plus CDs has been recorded on the Sony Classical, CBC Records, Analekta and Tafelmusik Media labels. Earlier this year, Tafelmusik became the first orchestra in North America to record all nine Beethoven symphonies on period instruments.
