‘Ensemble Polaris continues to delight on all levels – conceptually, musically and creatively… a musical cohesion and level of communication and symmetry that might not seem possible on paper, given the diversity of the elements involved.’     – The WholeNote

Produced in collaboration with Baroque Music beside the Grange, and with the assistance of the Ontario and Toronto Arts Councils.
