For Release: September 20, 2011
The Toronto Consort, Canada's leading early music chamber ensemble, will perform the Da Vinci Codex at Marylhurst University. The Toronto Consort is internationally recognized for its excellence in the performance of medieval, renaissance and early baroque music.
The Da Vinci Codex is a fully scripted show featuring dances and vocal works from the time of Leonardo da Vinci. The program includes music by composers he knew, songs he would have heard and dances he might have enjoyed. Interwoven with the music are selections from daVinci's own writings and from those of his contemporaries. The evening is built around da Vinci's life and includes sections inspired by the painting of the Last Supper, the Mona Lisa, his life in Florence and Milan, and his last days in France.
