Official Welcome Reception

The Bach Music Festival of Canada team continued to do what it came to the 2012 JUNOs Awards to do – celebrate the efforts of Canadian contemporary Classical musicians and to introduce the Festival to the nation’s best. 

To say we accomplished this, may be a bit of an understatement. For sheer enthusiasm, warmth and generousity of spirit the Bach Festival  left an indelible impression with everyone we met.

Tara Rintoul and Robert Wouda, former Gerald Fagan Singers members now living in Ottawa, joined us for the day’s events introducing us to some JUNO Nominated Ottawa musicians, including Stretch Orchestra, who won in their category!

The following photos tell the story much better than I could – and as the days progress we will continue to upload with anecdotes, escapades. Below we are seen with members of the industry.

I can say without a doubt that the Bach Festival did Exeter Ontario proud, London Ontario proud, the sponsors and supporters of the Festival proud, and truly laid the groundwork for the 2013 Festival!

The next morning we met for breakfast before the Board left me to my JUNO devices (!). Some moments we agreed “What happens at the JUNOs stays at the JUNOs!” but for the rest of those moments, we look forward to sharing with you in the coming weeks!

    If you think you made a buzz in Ottawa the buzz is happening in Exeter, Huron County and London. Congratulations – we all wish we had been there too. Norma
