From the foundation, given by Baroque dance rhythms to its companion in the art of music, to a view of the reverse relation with music, providing the stem of inspiration to a movement or dance free of set form.

Harpsichord music of Louis Couperin, Johann Sebastian Bach, Louis Andriessen


Organist Sarah Fraser is a multi-talented musician. A native of Montreal, she is a graduate of “la Conservatoire de Musique de Montreal” and the Toronto Conservatory of Music. She is a fluent speaker of French, English and Dutch.  She teaches harpsichord and organ.

Ms. Fraser is gifted not only in music but is also a professional translator and is a graduate of McGill University in that discipline. Having lived fourteen years in Holland prior to returning to Montreal, her knowledge of Dutch has obviously been an asset in that chosen field. In spite of her busy life, she still somehow finds the time to perform in six or seven organ concerts a year. She acts as a Saturday organist in the parish  of St. Willibrord’s church in Montreal.
