Simon Rivard with the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra

TSYO Winter Concert

Sat, Feb 25, 2023 George Weston Recital Hall

"For me, music begins where words cease..." declared Sibelius.

Let the TSYO transport you through a story by first setting the scene with Messiaen's Les Offrandes oubliées, painting the air with impressionist-like sound. Followed by Beethoven's Coriolan Overture and De Falla's El amor brujo telling the stories of love. Finally finishing with Sibelius' Symphony No.1 where the objectivity of the music speaks for itself allowing you as an audience member to write your own ending! Plus, RBC Resident Conductor, Trevor Wilson joins the TSYO as a guest conductor.

About the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra

For nearly 50 seasons, the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra (TSYO) has been dedicated to providing a high-level orchestral experience for talented young musicians aged 22 and under. The tuition-free TSYO program delivers a unique, powerful, and life-enriching opportunity that encourages significant achievement, regardless of participants' chosen career paths. The TSYO is closely affiliated with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO): TSO musicians serve as coaches through the season, TSO guest artists lead masterclasses for TSYO members, and the TSYO performs annually with the TSO in a side-by-side concert.

The Youth Orchestra has toured extensively within Canada and abroad. Tour destinations have included Banff, British Columbia, the Canadian Arctic, Quebec, Texas, Massachusetts, California, Japan, and Europe.
