Sharing

We are dedicated to sharing beauty and joy through music.

Respect

We respect and include all people in Tafelmusik’s endeavours, recognizing the inequality and underrepresentation experienced by marginalized peoples.

Collaboration

We foster equitable and collaborative relationships between all members of the organization as well as the community.

Stewardship

We are committed to the stewardship of music of the past through the education of students and enthusiasts alike, and through the training of pre-professional and professional musicians.

Learning

We value a culture of continuous learning and development, with a versatile and creative approach to future challenges.

Integrity

We are true to the integrity of our art through historically-informed performance practice and scholarship.

In abiding to and celebrating these values, we aim to achieve our commitment to celebrating beauty; reflect the vested interests of our board, staff, and musicians; and take a lead in making our community a better place through intentional, critical arts programming.

Land Acknowledgment

Tafelmusik’s home venue and offices are in the Annex neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario. We work and perform on lands that are located within the territory of many nations, including the Anishnahbeg, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat.

We acknowledge that we are on land covered by Treaty number 13, and the Williams Treaty, and that Toronto is still home to many diverse First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people. Tafelmusik recognizes the historic oppression of Canada’s Indigenous peoples, and recognizes that inequality and racism against Indigenous peoples are a part of Canada today. 

By making this land acknowledgment, we hope to make a small gesture towards reconciliation, and to honour Canada’s Indigenous heritage which dates back over 10,000 years.

Tafelmusik’s leadership affirms that the organization aims to continue learning, reconciling, and supporting Indigenous peoples and communities.

Patron Code of Conduct

Patron experience is among our highest priorities and we’ve established this code so that all may enjoy the benefits of our orchestra and choir.
