Noon Hour Concert: Hamilton & Durand - Pub & Parlour

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 12:30 pm - 12:30 pm EST

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!  Selections by Parry, Stanford, Billings, Cooke, and Sullivan will be included, with readings and recollections from the period of the founding of the City of Hamilton. This programme has been made possible by the generous support of the City of Hamilton Canada 150 Fund.

Sheila Dietrich, soprano;  Jennifer Enns Modolo, alto; Bud Roach, tenor;  David Roth, baritone
