TSO On Demand: Holiday Pops

The TSO does Noël like no other! Our annual holiday extravaganza will see members of the Orchestra at their festive finest under the merry baton of RBC Resident Conductor Simon Rivard. Your host, TSO Principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke, will guide you through timeless carols and other wassail-worthy works—including seasonal songs written and performed by celebrated Métis singer Andrea Menard and Canadian guitarist Robert Walsh. A special at-home audience sing-along and a virtual visit from you-know-who will put a bow on this holly jolly good time!

This concert is approximately 60 minutes in length and will feature 25 musicians from the Orchestra.

Steven Reineke's appearance is generously supported by Ross and Sarah Kerr.
