Cornwallite Stefanie True Appears With International Early Music Ensemble Vox Luminis!
CORNWALL (November 3, 2017) Stephanie True a graduate of the Cornwall Collegiate (CCVS) placed first in the London Handel Singing Competition (Adair Prize) and won second prize in the John Kerr Award competition 2010 in Kent, UK. She studied voice with Catherine Robbin at York University (Toronto), where she completed her BFA in 2003. Stephanie continued her studies at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (Netherlands) where she completed her Masters in Early Music.
Stephanie’s talents and being part of this extraordinary ensemble is one of the reasons we decided to bring them to Cornwall said Scott Peterson, Chairman of the Cornwall Concert Series. It took quite a lot of effort to get this group to perform in Cornwall but the logistics worked between their engagement in New York City and performance in Montreal as part of the annual Bach Festival.
Concert Date: Sunday, November 19, 2017 – 7:30 PM
Today, the ensemble performs over 60 concerts a year, appearing on stages in Belgium, across Europe and around the world. At the moment, the ensemble is busy preparing several recordings: the Dixit Diminus by G.F. Handel and the Magnificat by J.S. Bach. In addition to its own orchestra, Vox Luminis works with other renowned ensembles and orchestras. In 2017, a first project with the Franco-Canadian ensemble Masques and two collaborations with the Freiburger Barockorchester have also been scheduled.
