The Decades Project

A spellbinding journey through time

Art Gallery of OntarioThe TSO is thrilled to partner with the AGO to bring you The Decades Project: an unparalleled concert-going experience that combines transformative orchestral performances with exciting surprises galore.

Each of the performances listed below comes with fascinating pre- and post-concert extras, inviting you to immerse yourself in the music, art, fashion, attitudes, and important historical moments of the early 20th century.

Decades Project 1930-39

In 2017, hear masterworks from the 1930s, when traditional expressiveness lngered on the edges of this turbulent decade. Some composers continued to look to the past for inspiration while filtering it through their modernist approaches, and the uncertainties that crept into western society can be sensed int he music of others.

To enhance your experience, join us in the Roy Thomson Hall lobby for an array of exciting pre-concert, intermission and post-concert events co-curated by Peter Oundjian and Tom Allen.
