Tickets for Vivaldi: But Not "The Seasons" are now on sale!
Rezonance once again brings you the vocal pyrotechnics of coloratura soprano Vania Chan, this time with arias by Antonio Vivaldi. Some, such as the Domine Deus from his "Gloria", may be familiar, while others are the hidden gems you have come to expect from Rezonance programming. Get to know a different side of Vivaldi's orchestral music as well, with a selection of his concerti for strings - no one instrument gets to shine in these concerti that showcase the entire orchestra.
Vania Lizbeth Chan is a versatile artist, active in the fields of vocal performance and academia (M.M., Manhattan School of Music; PhD, York University). A lyric coloratura soprano, Vania’s voice has been described as “gently shimmering” (Opera News, NY) and “lovely and agile” (@KarasReviews). She has performed in Canada and internationally, making her Carnegie Hall debut as a 1st prize winner in the Barry Alexander International Competition (NY). Vania recently toured Europe, performing the music of Claude Vivier (Soundstreams). In September, she premieres the role of Wenli in City Opera Vancouver's production of Chinatown. Vania's upcoming performances for Fall 2022 include singing with Toronto's Glenn Gould foundation (GlennGould@90), the role of Eurydice (Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld, Toronto Operetta Theatre), the role of Celia (Mozart's Lucio Silla with Voicebox: Opera in Concert), and singing with the Toronto Consort in their Praetorious Christmas Vespers concert. Vania is thrilled to be performing again with Rezonance Baroque Ensemble!

With our 10th anniversary approaching, Rezonance is raising funds to record a full-length album, “Airs for the Seasons.” Funds will be used for all aspects of the recording process, including venue rental, harpsichord moving, audio engineering and mixing, marketing, packaging, and more. Our fundraising goal is $5000, although this only represents a fraction of the cost of making an album. Remaining funds will go to our regular operating costs.
Rezonance has provided beautiful renditions of early music to the community for years. Even throughout the pandemic, we have continued to make music. This could not have been done without YOUR help. As we recover from the pandemic, donations are more important than ever. Please consider offering some of your Black Friday savings in support of early music.
You can donate through CanadaHelps to our general operating costs/current season OR to our exciting upcoming full-length CD.
Rezonance is now available on EarlyMusic.TV!
You can now rent Un Viaggio Fantastico and The Art of Harmony on The Toronto Consort's new streaming platform EarlyMusic.TV!
