Canzona Chamber Players is pleased to present The Ninth Annual Memorial Concert for Elizabeth Krehm. Elizabeth passed away on November 17, 2012 in the ICU at St. Michael's Hospital. Elizabeth's family will be forever grateful for the wonderful care received by the doctors, nurses, and social workers at St. Mike's. Every year since her passing, her family has held a memorial concert as a fundraiser for the hospital raising over $175,000 to date. Now the Elizabeth Krehm Memorial concert serves to honour the memories of all cherished friends and family, through the healing power of music, together on boxing day.

This year's virtual recital is free to view, and whenever possible the family asks for donations to be made to the St. Michael's Hospital Foundation in Elizabeth Krehm's name.

Canzona Chamber Players is an annual classical and jazz chamber music concert series now in its 19th year featuring Canada’s top musicians. Since the onset of the pandemic, they have been broadcasting safe recitals, recorded to the highest standard on their YouTube Channel. The series has featured cellist Winona Zelenka (TSO), violinist Marie Bérard (COC), harpist and 2020 Juno recipient Angela Schwarzkopf, violinists Yosuke Kawasaki and Jessica Linnebach (NACO), and many others all in a fundraising effort to support the St. Michael's Hospital Foundation's COVID-19 Courage Fund.
