Aradia Ensemble does Dublin

I had the pleasure of working with conductor Kevin Mallon this summer on a production of Don Giovanni.  A fantastic musician and a very funny Irish man, Kevin FB'd me this week and reminded me that his "band", the Aradia Ensemble would be doing the Dublin Messiah this year...back by popular demand!

You can read a bit more about what the Dublin Messiah is all about at Kevin's blog but here is the original advert in the day of Handel:
“The Ladies who honour this Performance with their Presence would be pleased to come without hoops, as it will greatly encrease the Charity by making room for more company. The Gentlemen are desired to come without their Swords.”   (The Dublin Journal 10 April 1742).

Check out the Aradia Ensemble and their special Dublin Messiah on Saturday, December 17 at 8pm at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto.  Tickets are  $35, $20 seniors, $15 students.
