Cor Unum Ensemble presents: Merry & Bright
Warm up your weekend with cozy baroque chamber music classics by Toronto's new generation of early music artists. Like the Florentine Camerata, Cor Unum Ensemble meets to reimagine and rethink music from the 17th and 18th centuries. We invite you to join us for an intimate evening with highlights of music by our most beloved baroque composers performed among friends.
Cor Unum Ensemble (kr unum: one heart) is one of Torontos newest early music ensembles, comprised of emerging professionals interested in vocal and instrumental collaboration within the early music repertoire.
Founded in 2016 by Joel Allison and artistic director Ruth Denton, CUE performed its début concert to a full house at Trinity College Chapel, performing J.S. Bachs St. John Passion with guest artistic director Adrian Butterfield. Our second season included a choose-your-own-adventure story-telling concert called The Choice, a concert of early Italian instrumental and vocal music, and Pergolesis Stabat Mater. We are frequent guest artists in the Hamilton Hammer Baroque series and also present private house concerts.
CUE strives to create performance opportunities for young artists passionate about early music, and foster growth as individual artists. Our process is intentionally collaborative, valuing the collective experience our artists possess, and learning from one another as we prepare our programs. The dedication, scholarship, and spirited energy of our collaboration is a mere reflection of the mentorship and encouragement of the rich historical performance community in Toronto.
