Welcome to SchützFest350
A festival to mark the 350th anniversary of
German Baroque composer Heinrich Schütz’s death.
In-person festival activities took place in Ontario, Canada.
November 4 —13, 2022
SchützFest350 has come and gone. To say it was a success is a huge understatement. We were able to mount a weekend of significant concerts which did much to address the dearth of Schütz performances in Canada. Our sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped in the production and performance of these 5 weekend events which commemorated the 350th anniversary of the death of Heinrich Schütz, the greatest German composer before J.S. Bach.
SchützFest350 presented the music of Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672) over two weekends in four Ontario cities. Schütz’s music performed in the historically informed performance style using period instruments, original scores, judicious performance practices and appropriate vocal styling—all magnificently interpreted by the talent and artistry of our professional musicians.
SchützFest350 undertook this opportunity to help extend your knowledge and build your interest in this German Baroque composer.
