In recent seasons the Ensemble offers its performances on regional tours, collaborating with presenters who are passionate about sharing wonderful performances of this repertoire. This season, the ensemble has been presented by the Montreal Bach Festival in performance of Bach’s Magnificat, by Ad Litteram/ATMA Classique in a tour of Handel’s Messiah, by Music and Beyond in Ottawa as part of their tour of Bach’s St. John Passion last March. This program is presented in collaboration with the Arte Musica Foundation of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, as part of their complete cycle of cantatas by J.S. Bach. The directors of the Ensemble have also been invited this spring as guest artists at New York’s Carnegie Hall with The Orchestra of St. Luke’s and Montreal’s Symphonic Hall with the Montreal Symphony in performances of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion.
