Robert Aitken and Norma Beecroft, founding artistic directors

03 April 2016

Robert Aitken flute recital Thursday April 7

Dear Friends,
I thought you might be interested in a recital tomorrow evening which features a different aspect of our multi-talented artistic director Robert Aitken. Although he continues his acclaimed international solo career performing repertoire spanning three centuries around the globe, we rarely have a chance to hear him featured in anything but contemporary repertoire here in Toronto. On Thursday at 7:30 in the Church of the Holy Trinity Bob and distinguished pianist William Aide will perform the inaugural recital featuring the church’s new Steinway piano. Here are the details:
