Celebrate 100: A Gala Celebration with Yo-Yo Ma

Wed, Nov 16, 2022 Roy Thomson Hall

To mark the TSO’s Centennial, internationally beloved cellist Yo-Yo Ma joins Music Director Gustavo Gimeno and the Orchestra for Dvořák’s deeply emotive Cello Concerto. Plus, multi-award-winning Tobique First Nation artist Jeremy Dutcher makes a special appearance with Yo-Yo Ma to perform Honour Song.

We are looking forward to seeing you for a milestone evening with the TSO -- 100 years in the making!

Please review carefully to ensure you don't miss any of the special features of this gala concert: 

  • Arrive early! From 7.15 - 7.45 in the NORTH LOBBY enjoy musical interludes performed by members of the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra and their TSO coaches, and opportunities to take commemorative photos at our photo stations. 
  • Stay later! From 10.00 - 11.00 in the NORTH LOBBY join the entire audience for an after-party with TSO musicians -- featuring a special musical surprise, a glass of sparkling, and sweet treats. 

Don't miss these opportunities to celebrate a century of music with your TSO!

Both the Gala Concert and exclusive Gala Dinner are sold out! Thank you to all of our patrons, sponsors, and supporters. Funds raised will support the TSO’s concerts and community work which enrich thousands of lives each year through the power of music. 

Gustavo Gimeno’s appearances are generously supported by Susan Brenninkmeyer in memory of Hans Brenninkmeyer
