The Ultimate Guide to Eating Halloween Candy | October 26 – November 1, 2020

Sink your sweet tooth into a candy-centred hour of musical mayhem and Halloween hilarity, as TSO Principal Education Conductor & Community Am-BOO!-ssador Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser attempts to work late on All Hallow’s Eve to program the perfect Young People’s Concert—only to be interrupted by spooks, sprites, and serious sugar cravings!

This concert is one hour in length and will feature approximately 25 musicians from the Orchestra.

Kings of Ragtime | November 2 – 8, 2020

One of the building blocks of jazz, ragtime exploded in popularity at the turn of the 20th century in America and around the world. The undisputed King of Ragtime was composer Scott Joplin, whose syncopated standards—including the ever-popular “Maple Leaf Rag” and “The Entertainer”—provide the steady beat to this toe-tapping program.

This concert is 60–75 minutes in length and will feature approximately 25 musicians from the Orchestra.

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons | | November 16 – 22, 2020

Concertmaster Jonathan Crow performs as soloist and leads his TSO colleagues in Vivaldi’s timeless The Four Seasons. He also leads two dynamic works by living composers—“Coqueteos” from Gabriela Lena Frank’s melodic Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout and Sri Lankan–born Canadian composer Dinuk Wijeratne’s poetic, JUNO Award–winning “A letter from the After-life” from Two Pop Songs on Antique Poems.

This concert is 60–75 minutes in length and will feature approximately 20 musicians from the Orchestra.

All Mozart | November 30 – December 6, 2020

The striking evolution of one of classical music’s greatest talents is on full display in this all-Mozart program, led by TSO RBC Resident Conductor Simon Rivard.

This concert is 60–75 minutes in length and will feature approximately 25 musicians from the Orchestra

Gimeno + Beethoven 7 | December 14 – 20, 2020

Holiday Pops | December 21 – 27, 2020

The TSO does Noël like no other! Our annual holiday extravaganza will see members of the Orchestra at their festive finest.

Gimeno + Beethoven 6 | January 4 – 10, 2021

Recognizing the confluence of voices that comprise the classical repertoire, TSO Music Director Gustavo Gimeno has assembled a fascinating program that showcases Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 alongside pieces by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges—a Black 18th-century composer who helped develop the musical forms that Beethoven adopted—and Barbara Croall—an Odawa First Nations composer whose recent work Innenohr (Inner Ear), a TSO Co-commission, was inspired by Beethoven’s Second Symphony.

This concert is 60–75 minutes in length and will feature approximately 40 musicians from the Orchestra.

Beethoven Septet | January 18 – 24, 2021

Members of the TSO will perform Beethoven’s most crowd-pleasing contribution to the chamber music repertoire—his Septet—right inside your home! The only complete movement from the String Trio in B‑flat Major, D. 471, by Schubert, a devoted disciple of Beethoven’s, and a Ludwig-inspired reorchestration for septet of TSO RBC Affiliate Composer Emilie LeBel’s woodwind quintet, Haareis auf Morschem Holz (hair ice on rotten wood), round out the program.

This concert is 60–75 minutes in length and will feature approximately 20 musicians from the Orchestra.
