Event Details

Saturday December 22, 2012 -  The Dublin Messiah

Glenn Gould Studio, CBC Broadcast Centre


It is requested the Favour of the Ladies not to come with Hoops this Day to the Musick-Hall in Fishamble Street. The Gentlemen are desired to come without their swords. Such was the request on April 13th, 1742 for the performance of Mr. Handel’s new Sacred Grand Oratorio, the Messiah. After considerable public reaction last year, Aradia is happy to repeat its reconstruction of this first performance. Please leave your swords at home!

Aradia Ensemble

Aradia was the daughter of Apollo’s twin sisters, who was sent by the gods to teach humankind to order the music of the natural world into song.


Aradia Ensemble is a not-for-profit music group that specializes in the performance of Baroque music and also performs classical chamber, orchestral and vocal repertoire on period instruments.  Aradia endeavours to advance an appreciation and greater public understanding of these repertoires through an annual concert series, tours and recordings.


Aradia is committed to developing and presenting fresh approaches to baroque music by engaging young musicians and embracing creative partnerships that highlight the baroque style through juxtapositions and complementarities with a range of art forms.


The Aradia Ensemble was formed in 1996 as a musicians’ collective, becoming fully professional in 1999. Aradia has worked tirelessly to develop new talent and interest in Baroque music. Under the dynamic leadership of music director Kevin Mallon, Aradia presents a regular concert series in Toronto, and has toured extensively across Ontario, Canada and internationally (New Zealand, the USA, Ireland and Italy). From 2010-2014, Aradia was Orchestra in Residence for COSI (The Centre for Opera Studies in Italy) in Sulmona, Italy. Aradia performed in Newfoundland (2011) and performed with the Halifax Summer Opera Festival in Nova Scotia in 2014.


Aradia has a long history of involvement with education and outreach activities.  The ensemble is the mentor group for The Kingsway Conservatory Strings founded by Aradia violinist Elyssa Lefurgey Smith, which often performs alongside Aradia.


Aradia has a major recording contract with Naxos records, with over 50 CDs, some of which have won or been nominated for international prizes, including a JUNO nomination in 2009.   This has helped the ensemble gain a strong presence in the Canadian musical landscape, as Aradia receives significant airtime on CBC and other classical music stations.  Aradia has benefitted from positive reviews that stand as markers of the ensemble’s artistic excellence. Aradia’s most recent recording, a 3CD set of Handel concerti grossi opus 6 to be released in April 2013, has garnered interest in the international press (BBC Music Magazine feature, Gramophone magazine review etc.) Aradia has recently negotiated an ambitious recording program with Naxos for the coming years and will release a new CD in December of 2015.
