The baroque violinist who led Toronto’s Tafelmusik for 35 years has died.
Jeanne Lamon succumbed to lung cancer Sunday.
She was one of North America’s Early Music pioneers. She joined Tafelmusik in 1981 and built it into one of Canada’s most successful and internationally recognized arts institutions.
The New Classical FM’s Kathleen Kajioka played with Tafelmusik for many years and will be paying tribute to Jeanne Lamon in a special broadcast later this week.
Jeanne Lamon was 71.
