Nota Bene Players & Singers

Nota Bene Period Orchestra was founded in 2001 by Daniel Zondervan, Michael Purves-Smith and Richard Cunningham. The intention was to perform music from the 17th and 18th century with special attention to the performance practices of the time. Nota Bene Period Orchestra was renamed to Nota Bene Baroque Players in the Fall of 2011. This change was made so that the name clearly reflected the orchestra's identity as Kitchener-Waterloo’s professional Baroque group.

Finally, in 2021, wishing to expand on the growing repertoire of historical informed performances across the eras, the Nota Bene Baroque Players undergo a name change once more to that of the Nota Bene Players & Singers bringing to its audience performances on authentic or replica instruments, and stylistically coming as close as possible to recreating what the composers from these earlier eras intended us to hear.
