Melos Choir and Period Instruments

Enter the calming Medieval cloister with Melos; hear the Cathedral resound with our full choir, talented soloists, and virtuosic period instruments, as we explore the breadth of beautiful music from the 11th to 18th centuries. 

In this 2016-17 season, we invite you to join us as we delve into the Moorish influences in medieval Spain (Oct 15), compare eastern and western medieval Advent chant and Christmas carols (Dec 2); don Venetian masks and revel in fun and fundraising (Feb 24); and finish with a survey of the Italian Baroque that spawned Vivaldi and drew Handel to Rome to study (May 7).

Melos is also devoted to educational outreach in early music. This year in the fall and spring, we are hosting workshops with members of the Toronto Consort, and we will be offering an expanded "Baroque Idol" workshop and competition in January.

We hope you will enjoy our concerts in the historic, sacred space of St. George's, and be inspired to study, learn or even sing or play with us! See our new website, melos-earlymusic.org, for more details.
