I was pleased to be apart of The Amadeus Art Project: Visual Art Inspired by Music. The Auction presented 50 fine art works: paintings, drawings, original prints and photography. The Amadeus Art Project is intended to help fund future recording sessions in collaboration with Canadian composers. This was the Amadeus Choir’s first art auction and all went well without a hitch. The Amadeus Choir of Toronto is an 80 voice, all auditioned choir who perform about 10 concerts annually, often performing the works of Canadian composers. One of the highlights of their upcoming 40th anniversary season will be four concerts with the Toronto Symphony in Roy Thomson Hall. One of their mid-range goals is to continue to record the works of Canadian composers.
November 19th was snowy and cold but there was still a good turn-out to an evening of wine, cheese, art and socializing between the live and silent auctions. The lobby of Roy Thomson Hall was also a great setting for the evening.
I wish them all the best for next year.
