Paris Confidential

November 7 & 8 | 8pm

Renaissance Paris that is! The 16th century was a remarkable time for the growth of this great city. Music, dance, literature and the visual arts all flourished in an extraordinary outpouring, making France a dominant cultural power for centuries to come. Join us as we visit the bustling markets, the booksellers, the royal chapel and the sophisticated academies, on an insider’s tour organized by Alison Mackay, in her latest creation of music, words and stunning images.



The Little Barley-Corne

Yuletide Revels from the Renaissance

Dec. 12 & 13 | 8pm
Dec. 14 | 3:30pm

David GreenbergDavid Greenberg, who has been called “one of the most impassioned folk-fiddlers you’ll ever hear” joins forces with the Toronto Consort to throw a fabulous Christmas party of rollicking English ballads, infectious country dances and enchanting French noëls. The concerts mark the re-release of the Consort’s Little Barley-Corne CD, now appearing on the Marquis Classics label.

Splendours of the
Emperor's Chapel

February 6 & 7 | 8pm

Guest Director, theorbist Lucas Harris, leads the Consort and assembled forces in a lavish concert of music from the Viennese court and chapel of Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I. Cornettos, sackbuts, strings, keyboards, and virtuoso singers bring to life this magnificent but rarely-heard music – some of it being played for the first time since the 17th century – including works by Schmelzer, Biber, Bertali and Leopold I himself.

Dowland in Dublin

with Michael Slattery and La Nef
March 27 & 28 | 8pm

Michael SlatteryWas the great John Dowland, often considered the quintessential English lute master, actually Irish? There’s lots of evidence that he was, and our guest ensemble makes a compelling case when they take the famous songs and fantasias, and set them with Irish flute, fiddle and cittern. Rising star, tenor Michael Slattery, (dubbed by Opera Now as “Leonardo di Caprio with top notes”) brings all his signature passion and charm to the evening.

The Play of Daniel

May 22 & 23 | 8pm
May 24 | 3:30pm

The grand finale to our season is the greatest masterpiece of Medieval music theatre: a wondrous telling of the story of the writing on the wall and Daniel in the lions’ den. A full theatrical production, with the Consort Medieval players and singers joined by Kevin Skelton in the role of Daniel, and the young voices of the VIVA! Youth Singers of Toronto, this is an event not to be missed.
