Founded by tenor Bud Roach in 2008, Capella Intima has carved out a niche for itself in the Toronto early music scene by presenting the vocal chamber music of the 17th century in exciting concerts of rarely-heard gems. With motets and cantatas for up to four voices interspersed with readings from composers, performers and critics of the period, audiences are given context to music that has only come to light in recent years, thanks to the renewed interest in historically informed performance.
Capella Intima will present a programme of late 18th and early 19th-century glees and catches that would have been popular during the early days of the city of Hamilton. A little Kitchener-Waterloo history will be incorporated as well!
