I am delighted to announce our seventh annual Tafelmusik Winter Institute, to be held in Toronto January 4–10, 2019. We will once again welcome a select group of period players to join us for an intensive week of specialized orchestral study.
This year we will focus on the wealth of repertoire written for string orchestra in the form of the concerto grosso, with music from Italy, Germany, and England. The Institute is open to experienced players of baroque string instruments, lute, and harpsichord/organ.
The week will include orchestra rehearsals, sectionals, seminars, masterclasses, informal reading sessions, and a final public concert. Leadership of sections will be shared amongst the players.
Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful sponsors, we are delighted to be able to offer this programme at a greatly reduced fee of $300.
Details of the Tafelmusik Winter Institute are included on the following pages. The application deadline is October 15, 2018. If you are an experienced period player, please consider applying.
