Chamber Music Mississauga @home

Special thanks to the Streetsville Bread and Honey Festival and the Hazel McCallion Foundation whose support makes these videos possible.


Rebecca Diderrich shares with us the music that is helping her cope with all the stress of COVID. Many professional musicians, like Rebecca, are out of work and are eagerly seeking outlets for their creativity and passion. Here she shares some solo Bach moments to warm our hearts today.


Musicians, home alone like the rest of the world, find solace and companionship in their daily routine of practicing.
Here is Penny Johnson, pianist, in the sanctuary of her home sharing with us some of her favourite pieces.
  • J. S. Bach – Prelude & Fugue #24 in B-minor, WTC I (BWV 869)
  • F. Chopin – Mazurka Op. 17 #4
  • Radiohead (arr. Christopher O’Riley) – Let Down
