Accompanied by her dynamic Via Salzburg Chamber Orchestra, Artistic Director Mayumi Seiler will take the solo stage in the performance of the well-known Haydn Concerto in C major and the rarely performed Haydn Concerto in A major. Ms. Seiler has performed these works with orchestras around the world and has recorded them with the City of London Sinfonia to critical acclaim. "Seiler brings an exceptional blend of precision with tonal generosity, finesse with enthusiasm. She persuades you to share her absorption" BBC Music Magazine.

Founded in 1999 by Artistic Director Mayumi Seiler, the Via Salzburg Chamber Orchestra has developed into Toronto's premier chamber music orchestra. It has been hailed by the Toronto Star as, "One of the best roads to our musical hearts."
