Welcome to Capella Intima
Artistic Director and Founder Bud Roach was busy recording The Grandi Project this past summer. Several of the 22 arias in Grandi's Third volume of arias from 1626 have been featured in Capella Intima concerts. Bud will also be performing selections from the recording at the Toronto Early Music Fair on September 29th, 2012.
Check out some excerpts and historical background in this promotional video for the project:
Please see details below about our concerts on March 16th and 17th, 2013

​​We are presenting two beautiful pieces of music:  the oratorio "Giuseppe", possibly by Luigi Rossi, preceded by a setting of "Laudate pueri" by Rovetta-  an hour-long concert with beautiful ensembles, arias, and instrumental interludes.

Here are some excerpts from our first rehearsals earlier this week. You can hear more about Capella Intima and these works on John Terauds's first podcast on his blog at www.musicaltoronto.org

We look forward to meeting you this weekend!​​​​​​​​
