Arts & Culture


Tafelmusik is a world-renowned orchestra, choir, and experience that brings the music of the 17th to 19th century vividly to life through dynamic performances; international touring; award-winning recordings; and innovative education and community-based programs. Founded over 40 years ago on the pillars of passion, learning, and artistic excellence, Tafelmusik’s inspired, historically informed performances bring new energy and insight to the music of the Baroque and Romantic eras and to contemporary music commissioned for the orchestra today.

Forward thinking and deeply committed, Tafelmusik musicians are passionate about sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm with new audiences through education programming to reach children and young people, talented teenage musicians and emerging artists. Recognizing the importance of music to improving mental health and wellbeing, Tafelmusik presents enriching live concerts and high quality digital programs that challenge, inspire and comfort by inviting audiences to engage with the beauty and experience the breadth of emotion music can inspire.

Our Impact

With innovative multimedia programs, cross-cultural collaborations, and interdisciplinary creative partnerships, Tafelmusik transcends beyond baroque, to celebrate the beauty of the past through a contemporary cultural lens. Through the discovery and performance of lost masterworks and the revival of neglected composers, Tafelmusik contributes to the growth of musical knowledge and shares their excitement with audiences of all ages.
