CMC Presents: Charm of Finches

Charm of Finches perform music for flute ensemble.

As colleagues and friends, the members of Charm of Finches have been swooping in and out of each others’ lives for more than a decade. Their shared connections include hometowns, high schools, universities, training orchestras, and now Canada’s professional arts landscape. The Finches are active soloists and chamber musicians in their own right; their performance history extensively covers Canada and the US, as well as Asia, and the United Kingdom, and performance venues stretching from the forests of Haliburton, Ontario to Carnegie Hall.

A bird sings to attract a mate, establish territory, or simply because they love to sing. Charm of Finches look to make an impact on Canada’s music scene.
