Burlington, ON


Several years ago Andrea Battista formed a chamber music group and called it: Effusion.

It started when she was awarded a grant from the Burlington Arts and Culture Fund to put on a concert, The Gratitude Project, just as things opened up after the pandemic. It was extremely well received by the public.

This second, concert features the work of 18 different female composers. Some are classical, some composed for musical theatre and some wrote works for television and film amounting to short selections from many different styles of music.

Local musicians, eight of them, are part of Effusion  –  Sunday, March 3rd at St. Christopher’s Anglican Church, Guelph Line, 3:30 pm
