Tenor Cory Knight first joined the Tafelmusik Chamber Choir in the fall of 2010 shortly after participating in the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute. Cory holds a Master of Arts degree in Historical Performance Practice from the prestigious Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland and an Advance Diploma in vocal performance from the Glenn Gould School. Cory performs regularly as both an ensemblist and soloist and has been described as “that rare, wonderful, lyric tenor who turns every note he sings into gold” (Musical Toronto). He has sung at major festivals and concert venues across Europe, including the Utrecht Early Music Festival, Trigonale Early Music Festival, and the Baroque Music Festival in Ambronay, France. Highlights of his work in Canada include singing with Pacific Opera Victoria, Les Violon Du Roy, Opera Atelier, La Chapelle de Québec, Soundstreams, and Tapestry Opera. Cory is also an Artistic Associate with Toronto Consort, which has become internationally recognized for its excellence in the performance of medieval, renaissance and early baroque music. In addition to his work as a musician, Cory holds a Bachelor of Education degree and works as an Occasional Teacher with the Toronto District School Board.
