This concert will take place in Toronto on Saturday, September 27th at 8 p.m. at St. David’s Anglican Church, and will be repeated in Waterloo on Sunday, September 28th at 8 p.m. at the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Music Society’s Music Room.
Harmonie is a Canadian/American Baroque ensemble dedicated to exploring little-known musical treasures of 17th- and early 18th- century Europe.
