It was the chamber orchestra that played Mozart and Haydn symphonies in the old University of Ottawa Academic Hall on Wilbrod Street after the collapse of the Ottawa Philharmonic around 1958. I was completely captivated by the beauty of what I heard; and am delighted that a fully profes~iolml chamber orchestra is about to become part of the Toronto concert scene again. Sinfonia Toronto's music director is Nurhan Annan, whose past accomplislunents suggest a bright future for the new ensemble. Currently music director of Symphony New Brunswick, he also teaches conducting for the International Conductors Guild and for the Orford Arts Centre. He has recorded for CBC Radio and TV as well as in the U.S and Europe and in 1993 was appointed principal guest conductor of the Yerevan Symphony in Armenia. Sinfonia Toronto is the result of Maestro Arman's recently taking up residence in Toronto and the keen interest of a small group of friends and acquaintances in providing this type of orchestra here. Its mandate has been best -F-ra_n_k_F_a_r-ka""" · s- 4 - 7 -~~~-~--""""":P--C:-:h--d- 1 ~6 --------l described by a member of its eter an er Friends of Gravity 36 pro VOCE 20, 27 board of directors: "Our Gemstone Records 9 Remenyi/Opera Store 7 mission is to create a world- Grace Church on-the-Hill 42 Riverdale Concert Series 32 class chamber orchestra ....
