Heliconian Hall: an evening of music with Alison Melville and Julia Seager-Scott

On November 30 at Toronto’s Heliconian Hall, Alison Melville and Julia Seager-Scott will present BORDER CROSSINGS, an evening of music of traditional and Baroque origins performed on the clarsach (17th-century Scottish traditional harp), Baroque triple harp, recorders, Baroque flute, and kantele (traditional Finnish dulcimer).

ALISON MELVILLE AND JULIA SEAGER SCOTT

Drawing mostly from Irish, Scottish, English and Italian traditions, the program includes 18th-century music by the Irish harper Turlough O’Carolan and Scotland’s tune collector James Oswald, Baroque sonatas by Arcangelo Corelliand Antonio Vivaldi, grounds from The Division Flute, and a small surprise or two.
For those of us who live in the northern part of our hemisphere, November’s lengthening nights are a reminder that winter is undoubtedly on its way; but a darkened evening is also a perfect time to bask in music’s shimmering gifts.

Sounds and music not to be missed – we hope you’ll join us!
