Just announced! We will be hosting the Magisterra Soloists for two free, participatory public performances in the Centre at the Forks on Family Day 

Magisterra Soloists: A Voyage Through Music History
1:30 pm and 2:45 pm performances (45 minutes each)
Centre at the Forks at Museum London 

Magisterra's special interactive Family Day concert features a violin quartet and will take children and adults alike on a voyage through Music History from the Baroque to the 21st-century. Engage with the musicians through audience participation, clapping, dancing, and singing while experiencing the colours, textures, and rhythms of string chamber music! 

The Magisterra Soloists have become the face of visionary chamber music in Southern Ontario with a roster of over 35 international musicians, a repertoire of over 100 works, and nearly 100 concerts and educational performances to their name. In only 4 years, this grassroots not-for-profit organization has already played a significant role in invigorating and enriching the local artistic experience. Their festival-style chamber music concerts (including their Magisterra at the Museum performance series at Museum London) bring together first-rate international artists and emerging Canadian artists in a collaborative effort to forge an artistic culture.
