Did you know that Vivaldi suffered from bronchial asthma throughout his life?
Even with his condition, he became a prolific composer and wrote for many odd woodwind instruments rarely heard in modern times… until now!
This Saturday, February 20, 2016 and Sunday, February 21, 2016, come and hear the beloved music of Vivaldi played by Toronto’s foremost early music specialists! Saturday’s event will take place in downtown Oakville at St. John’s United Church on Randall, and Sunday’s concert will take place in Falgarwood at St. Simon’s Anglican Church on Litchfield.
Soloists Benjamin Stein, Jennifer Thiessen, and Alison Melville bring the best of the Baroque era to the centre stage in this fun and entertaining line up of music.
Tickets start for as little as $20 and children under 12 are free!
Oakville Chamber Orchestra would like to thank all of our sponsors for the 2015/2016 season. A special thanks to our intermission refreshments provider Cloud 9 Coffee Roastery and audience prize donor Olivo Fresco.
