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!
