The group’s December concerts feature an all-woman ensemble made up of established and emerging artists.
“BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND”: the catchphrase sums up the back story to Vetta Chamber Music’s upcoming concert. Bach & Mendelssohn is the second iteration of the ensemble’s mentorship program, which launched in 2021 and featured an all-woman ensemble made up of veteran musicians alongside four emerging artists who were just launching their careers.
“The audience responded favourably to the youthful energy enthusiasm of the group as well as the high level of ensemble playing,” explains Vetta artistic director and violinist Joan Blackman. “I resolved to expand the idea of mentorship of young, women emerging artists with another concert this season at the time of year when people appreciate a bit of cheer and fun.”
