About Us 2011-2012

Founded in 1979 by Artistic Director Elizabeth Ganiatsos and registered as a non-profit charitable organization in 1982, Consortium Aurora Borealis performs repertoire primarily from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, with occasional forays into the Mediaeval, Classical and Early Romantic eras. High artistic standards, varied and exciting programming and historically-themed concerts with authentic instruments add to its dynamic presence in the region. It has been hailed with great enthusiasm by audience and press alike. Now in its 32nd season, it continues with its mission to educate as well as to entertain, presenting up to six concerts of chamber music annually.
