News 2005-2009: (CA) Nota Bene Period Orchestra -- May Concert Fundraiser

Contributed by Admin on May 14, 2009

“A message from Borys Medicky, Artistic Director of Nota Bene Period Orchestra:

Dear Friends,

After eight years and more than fifty successful concerts in Waterloo Region and Guelph, we find ourselves in a serious financial situation. As a result, we had to make changes to the final two concerts of our 2008-2009 season. We will now be finishing the season on May 16th with a fundraiser and a concert of Baroque Favourites:

Bach, Double Violin concerto; Marais, a suite from Alcyone
Purcell, a suite from the Fairy Queen; Telemann, "La Bizarre," an orchestral suite
Handel, a trio sonata; Purcell, a solo keyboard suite

Don't miss our Silent Auction at 7:00 pm and continuing at intermission. A chance to bid on live music for a festive occasion; beautiful floral paintings; music lessons; CDs, and many more items

May Concert and Fundraiser
Saturday, May 16, 2009
The Registry Theatre
122 Frederick Street, Kitchener
Silent Auction 7 pm and concert 8 pm
Tickets $25

Our musicians are keen to save KW's own Baroque orchestra and are freely donating their time to this concert. Your support will help keep historically informed performances alive for all in the community who treasure music by the Baroque masters. Please join us on May 16th at the Registry for an evening of music, edibles, and a silent auction.“
