Whew. What a year!

In 2017, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra marked Canada 150 with a celebration of Canada’s diverse musical landscape called Canada Mosaic.

Here are some highlights:

And here’s what the press had to say:

  • “I was short of breath, too, and ecstatic” – New Yorker
  • “The symphony isn’t just for your grandparents – it is cooler than you think.” – Vice
  • “… a surprisingly rare chance to recognize Canadian composers” – Globe and Mail
  • “Such repeat performances are crucial for contemporary compositions, whose success comes not through bursts of popularity, as with pop songs, but via longevity – which isn’t a given. ” – National Post

TSO Canada Mosaic is a Canada 150 Signature Initiative, and is funded in part by the Government in Canada.
