A multimedia tale of the musical ideas of baroque Europe’s refugee artists.

“Entertaining, educational, musically rewarding and visually arresting.” – Huffington Post (on Alison Mackay’s work)

Following the success of Alison Mackay’s productions, The Galileo Project and Tales of Two Cities, comesSafe Haven. This multimedia concert of masterworks by Vivaldi, Corelli, Lully, and Bach portrays the influence of migration on the musical life of Europe—and equally of present-day Canada. The movement of refugees across 18th-century Europe changed and enriched both the economy and culture of major cities: French Huguenots could be found in Amsterdam, Scottish Catholics in Warsaw, Sephardic Jews in the cities of Northern Italy.

Among many examples of musicians finding safe havens were composer Tobias Hume, a Scottish mercenary soldier who lived in Poland, and influential music publisher Estienne Roger, who was exiled from France to Amsterdam. This is a tale of the cross-pollination of art with some surprising revelations.
