“I enjoyed the madrigals, the blend of 5 voices, and the facial expressions which matched the songs.”

“I enjoyed the enthusiasm of the performers. The hurdy-gurdy was awesome!

Student Comments
Toronto Consort Education Program

“.. a highly well-balanced and entertaining event. My students were thoroughly engaged, especially by the storytelling aspects, the theatrical nature of the singers and the introduction to the period instruments. It was a useful connection to curriculum about the Renaissance Era, and gave a great hands-on chance to hear/see the instruments at work!”
