About Us 2013-2014

Please join us in celebrating our Ruby Anniversary! 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 Baroque era, with occasional forays into the Mediaeval, Renaissance, Classical, Early Romantic eras, and sometimes even later. High artistic standards, varied and exciting programming, and historically-themed concerts with authentic instruments add to the dynamic presence of Northwestern Ontario’s only early music group.


Our city’s finest professional soloists and chamber ensembles join with distinguished guest artists in seven to eight concerts each season, presented in St. Paul’s United Church, a heritage building noted for its fine acoustics.


A reasonable admission price makes these performances accessible to everyone. Consortium Aurora Borealis remains vital and vibrant. It has built a reputation for musical excellence over the past forty seasons, maintaining a vigorous presence in Thunder Bay. It has been hailed with great enthusiasm by audience and press alike, and continues with its mission to educate as well as to entertain.
