LES BOREADES DE MONTREAL
Do you like Bach, Handel and Vivaldi? Do you know the music these great masters were fascinated by? A Baroque Orchestra playing on period instruments, and named for the winged sons of the Greek god of the north wind, Boreas. Sounds like a great way to open a new season of fabulous music!
