Join us for the second EMSI concert of the season
Possessed of astounding technique, deep musicality and undeniable charm, the young American lyric
soprano Amanda Forsythe has taken the world of early music by storm. Works by Handel and rival composers from the “Opera of the Nobility” who briefly put him out of business—Porpora, Hasse and others.

Founded in 1985 and based in Victoria BC, the Early Music Society is a non-profit, volunteer-run society dedicated to offering accomplished performances of music composed prior to 1800.
