GODERICH – The world famous music of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra comes to Lakeshore United Church on Feb. 11.

Tafelmusik explores the music of the King’s Theatre Haymarket when it was under the guidance of retired oboist, Richard Neale. Neale played for them all – Handel, Galliard, Sammartini, Bononcini and Pepusch. Relive the glory of baroque London through his musical triumphs, the perils and joys of playing the oboe, and the genius of Handel.  Music as it was never heard before, from behind the music stand of a forgotten 18th-century oboist, as imagined by R.H. Thomson.

Tafelmusik, Canada’s award-winning period instrument orchestra, was founded in 1979 and has long been renowned in North America and internationally for its distinct, exhilarating and soulful performances. Musical direction by Jeanne Lamon, narrative by Canadian actor R.H. Thomson.

This fund-raising event takes place Monday, Feb. 11 from 7:30 to 9:15 p.m.
at Lakeshore United Church (formerly North Street United Church), 56 North Street, Goderich.

Tickets, $20, are available at Lakeshore United Church Office (519) 524-2103, Fincher’s, Park House, Ernie King Music, and Tourism Goderich or at the door.
