Play Along with Jonathan Crow—Winners Announced!

February 2, 2021

Toronto Summer Music (TSM) and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) thank and applaud everyone who joined our Play Along with Jonathan Crow challenge. More than 70 performances were shared with us via social media and email, and it was an absolute pleasure seeing so many talented musicians play along with us.

To celebrate everyone’s performances, we will be hosting a special Zoom Concert & Chat with Jonathan Crow for ALL of the participants of this challenge. You’ll get to hear Jonathan play a selection of his current favourites, and you’ll also have the chance to ask him questions after the performance.*

We are also excited to offer a free pass to view TSO On Demand: Vivaldi's Four Seasons to ALL participants of the challenge.*

*We will be in touch with everyone directly to share the details of our offer. All award winners will also be directly contacted with details of their award opportunities.
