Tafelmusik Chamber Series: Midsummer Follies

Tafelmusik at the McMichael: CHAMBER 3 — The days are long and the nights short, and we welcome the summer solstice with musical follies. We look beyond the courtly music of the baroque to the dance music and songs that were popular in the cafés, taverns, and country fairs. Our midsummer celebration takes us from the British Isles to northern Europe—and from France to New France, featuring music that migrated across the Atlantic and remain part of the Québecois folk tradition today.

River of Dreams: Impressionism at the St. Lawrence, Curatorial Talk

Bouchard will explore these works in the social context of a rapidly changing society, as rural life in Quebec gave way to modernity.
