Moose Warning - Ontario mini-Tour, March 27, 2013

Stephanie Miletic, Tour Manager

Everyone we have spoken to in Timmins is overjoyed that we are here. According to many here, the opportunities for students to experience live music in schools and have masterclasses are few and far between. I definitely take it for granted living in Toronto!

Historical Connections - Ontario Tour, February 12, 2013

Christopher Verrette, violin

...times like these are opportunities to get some preparation done for whatever is coming next for the busy musicians of Tafelmusik. Especially with a tour of the memorised House of Dreams show not too far over the horizon, we like to take advantage of being gathered together for "playdates" for grownups (if we qualify).

Time Travelling and Snowstorms - Ontario Tour, February 11, 2013

Christopher Verrette, violin

Setting out on tour often reminds me of the opening chapter of La Lenteur, by Milan Kundera, in which a scene of fast-paced modern traffic leads to a reflection on a very different journey taken in an eighteenth-century tale and culminates in an encounter between two characters from different eras.

Our last day in Sudbury was packed full with a variety of activities. Christopher Verrette and I headed to Laurentian University for a 9am masterclass with violin and viola students.

Stephanie Miletic (Operations Manager)

My name is Stephanie Miletic and I am the Operations Manager at Tafelmusik. My daily duties consist of organizing the production details for concerts, and for the past two years I have organized the Ontario Tours. Hailing from St. Mary's Ontario, population of 6 700, it brings me such joy to organize tours that enrich smaller Ontario schools, towns and cities.

The final day of the tour – 7 days and 12 concerts later, we’re on the bus heading home.

Charlotte Nediger (harpsichord)

We change directions today and head west for two days of school shows, first in St. Mary’s and then in Windsor. St. Mary’s brings us closer to my home turf than we usually get – my hometown is Seaforth, in Huron County 50 kilometres to the north, and I spent much of my childhood in London, 40 kilometres to the south.

Charlotte Nediger (harpsichord)

On tour one tends to lose track of time. There’s the usual “If it’s Tuesday it must be Belgium” (or in our case, Port Perry), but the clock also seems to play tricks, sometimes skipping forward and sometimes standing still.
