bringing the excitement of live classical music to York Region since 2001

Maestro’s Message 2020-2021

“During these unprecedented times the York Chamber Ensemble endeavors to keep live orchestral music thriving and continue to bring community together through innovative and engaging experiences. Together with the Aurora Public Library and the Canada-wide celebration “Culture Days” we are delighted to bring our audience a virtual concert of our favourite transcriptions for string quartet. This season will also include live intimate concerts, featuring such artists as pianist Shoshana Telner performing Mendelssohn’s Piano Concert no. 2 in a special version accompanied by string orchestra. Since circumstances can evolve on a daily basis, please stay tuned and connected: you never know when a live or virtual concert will pop-up! We look forward to making music together through this extraordinary season and I look forward to interacting with you in person and/or online!”
