Musical Flora

A concert series at St.John the Evangelist in Kitchener.

Every concert is as a flower, a bouquet, a garden, a place for musical communion, contemplation, exposure and pleasure.

The series updates a tradition which begins at the time of Frescobaldi (17th century), for example with his Fiori Musicali, of extended works - or in this case a concert series - which represent a diversity of musical forms. Today that diversity is far vaster, vast enough to include non-western classical traditions, popular genres, ancient and new, experimental music, computer music, improvisation … .

Below is a quick overview of what is coming up this half of 2024. Planning is already underway for the fall of 2024 and the spring of 2025.
