The Musicians in Ordinary Gives A Baroque New Year Concert

THE MUSICIANS IN ORDINARY BRING IN THE NEW YEAR
WITH A BAROQUE CONCERT, JANUARY 1 & 2, 2015

A Baroque concert gets the New Year off to an out-of-the-ordinary start when The Musicians In Ordinary present their annual New Year’s Day concert, Thursday, January 1 at 2 p.m. at the Heliconian Hall, 35 Hazelton Avenue (Bay subway), Toronto.  A second performance takes place Friday, January 2 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, $30, $20 for students and seniors, are available at the door.  Information is available atwww.musiciansinordinary.ca, or by calling 416-535-9956or e-mailing musinord@sympatico.ca.

MIO’s annual New Year’s Day concert this year features High Baroque music, mostly from Italy, with Baroque violinists Christopher Verrette and Patricia Ahern, and harpsichordist Borys Medicky  joining MIO’s core duo of soprano Hallie Fishel and lutenist John Edwards.

Among the musical offerings will be a cantata by Alessandro Scarlatti, violin sonatas by Arcangelo Corelli and Antonio Vivaldi, and one by Johann Christoph Pez (1664-1716), a tower watchman who became choir director of Munich`s Church of St. Peter.

A fixture on the Toronto early music scene for over a decade, The Musicians In Ordinary continue as ensemble in residence at St. Michael’s College, where this season it is performing concerts of choral and orchestral music, and three concerts of Catholic “house music” with violinist Christopher Verrette. (http://www.musiciansinordinary.ca/concerts/st-mikes). This position also serves as base for its mission to place the music of the Renaissance and Baroque in a cultural context for colleges, universities and museums across North America.

The Musicians In Ordinary are supported in part by the Spem in Alium Fund of the Toronto Community Foundation.
