Early Music Vancouver - Baroque Vocal Program

Each summer I have the opportunity and treat to fly to Vancouver during the best two weeks of the summer weather and to immerse myself in the vocal music of the 17th century. Our faculty team has really connected and refined the program over the past 4-5 years and we really offer each group of 12 singers (no more, no less!) something truly unique and special. 

I am privileged to teach alongside fellow multi-keyboardist Michael Jarvis, Lucas Harris on plucked strings (lute, theorbo, baroque guitar), Marie-Nathalie Lacoursierre (movement, gesture and Baroque dance), and of course the fantastic Ellen Hargis, leading it all with experience, poise and humour.

End to a Great Year!

All good things have to come to an end, and I have now come to the end of my year at Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Institute of Music. I've had a great time working with all of the talented students of the Historical Performance Program at CWRU and the many interesting pianists, instrumentalists and singers at CIM who have taken my classes in Harpsichord and Viennese Classicism!

We will make our move back to Toronto in early July 2016, with exciting things on the horizon, but this year will always bring back fond memories of wonderful friends, colleagues and performances!
