Toronto's Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra Extends Music Director to 2024

The Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra in Toronto has this week announced the contract extension of Music Director, Elisa Citterio

The Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra in Toronto, Canada has this week announced the contract extension of Music Director, Elisa Citterio – through to the conclusion of the 2022-2023 season.

The Italian conductor and violinist has previously served as a member of the Orchestra del Teatro della Scala di Milano - and was recently awarded the 2019 'Leonardo Award for Arts, Science & Culture' by the Italian Chamber of Commerce for her contribution to the cultural and intellectual life of Canada.

“We’re thrilled that Elisa will remain with Tafelmusik until at least 2023 ... in addition to her bold programming and breathtaking playing, she has provided inspiring artistic leadership that continues to set the bar even higher for what is already one of the world’s leading period orchestras,” Ensemble Board Director David Kilburn has this week said.

“What a joy it is to make music with my Tafelmusik colleagues, who inspire me every day ... it is a privilege to perform for such enthusiastic live and online audiences who embrace the breadth of emotion that music can inspire," Elisa has this week said.
