James Ehnes + An American in Paris

Wed, May 29–Sat, Jun 1, 2024 Roy Thomson Hall

Conductor Stéphane Denève leads Spotlight Artist James Ehnes in Bernstein’s Serenade, inspired by the philosopher Plato’s views on love, blending the composer’s signature classical, romantic, and modernist elements with hints of jazz and Broadway. Connesson's composition paints a musical vision of an enchanting, mythical city, and Gershwin’s love letter to Paris, with its classical-jazz fusion, stirs emotions with its seductive rhythms and harmonies.

There's a free pre-concert performance by the TSO Chamber Soloists before the Thursday, May 30 performance. See the TSO Chamber Soloists page for more information.

TTC Service Advisory: Saturday, June 1, 2024, there will be no subway service on Line 1 Yonge-University between St Clair and Sheppard-Yonge due to planned station improvements and track work. St Clair and Sheppard-Yonge are both accessible stations. Shuttle buses and extra Wheel-Trans vehicles will operate.
