Message From the President of the Board

Dear Patrons and Friends,

Our lives have been affected by the pandemic in every area, and so it also happens to the plans of the Consortium Aurora Borealis.  We had a very ambitious program for our 42nd Season, but given the current circumstances we were forced to change those plans.

At our last Board meeting, we decided to postpone our 42nd season and we hope you will be able to hear this program as our 43rd season.

For this season we will be working towards delivering a limited online/virtual program.  We are also considering the possibility of holding a limited number of live concerts following all Health Unit, city, and government regulations and guidelines to keep our patrons and musicians safe.  Currently, nothing has been decided or approved yet.

Thus far 141 people have purchased season passes. Since we cannot offer the season as promised, our duty is to send you a full refund. The processing and mailing of these refunds should be finished before the end of September.

Knowing the generosity and past support of our patrons and friends, we would be grateful if some patrons decided to convert their Season Pass into a tax-deductible donation to the Consortium.  This will help us prepare for the next season, but the choice is entirely yours.  Please send an email to us if you wish to convert your Season Pass into a donation:

We will keep you informed as the situation develops on both our website and on social media.  We thank you for your patronage, support, and friendship.  We hope that we will be able to continue providing and enjoying great music this year.


Fr. Francisco Blazek
President of the Board of Directors
Consortium Aurora Borealis

Music makes US stronger

Music helps to strengthen relationships and connect individuals.  We produce professional concerts of music that otherwise would seldom be heard in our area, becoming Northwestern Ontario’s Baroque and Early Music specialists.  Our repertoire now covers many eras of classical music – Baroque and Beyond! 

Our mission is to educate as well as to entertain, to improve the quality of life in our community, to present concerts accessible to all, and to enlarge the city’s audience for classical music.
