Jesse Blumberg in world premiere of Edwin Huizinga's Annunciation

Jesse Blumberg and Opera Atelier
Barihunk and early music specialist Jesse Blumberg will be featured in Opera Atelier's double-bill of The Angel Speaks and the Canadian premiere of Annunciation, a new commission by Toronto-based composer and violinist Edwin Huizinga for period instruments. The concert will blend baroque music with contemporary music inspired by early music.

The Angel Speaks unites baroque music, contemporary music and dance, while Annunciation is a setting of Rainer Maria Rilke's poem of the same name for six soloists by Canadian composer Edwin Huizinga. Blumberg will be joined by soprano Mireille Asselin, soloists from the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and five dancers from the Atelier Ballet.

Performances are at the historic Royal Ontario Museum  on February 21, 2019 and tickets are available online
