TSO New Music: Explore the Score
Sat, Jan 12, 2019, 9:55am–12:30pm
Roy Thomson Hall
As part of our commitment to support the development of emerging Canadian composers and the creation of new orchestral works, and to give the public the opportunity to witness artistic creation first-hand, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) introduces Explore the Score. This program is presented in collaboration with the Canadian Music Centre (CMC).
Since 2012, the TSO has given some of Canada’s top emerging composers an opportunity to hear their brand-new works rehearsed in a live professional orchestral setting. This program is unique in that it brings together a cohort of composers to work with a renowned orchestra to receive mentorship from a variety of artistic and administrative staff.
On January 12, the TSO will be débuting new compositions by five emerging Canadian composers who were chosen after a rigorous selection process. This year's TSO Explore the Score composers are Sean Clarke (Ottawa), Keiko Devaux (Montreal), Kathryn Knowles (Toronto), Julia Mermelstein (Toronto), and Scott Ross-Molyneux (Calgary). As part of the mentorship, the composers will receive feedback in a closed session the same day from TSO Composer Advisor Gary Kulesha, TSO Affiliate Composer Emilie LeBel, members of the Orchestra, and TSO Principal Librarian Gary Corrin.
We have reached capacity for this free event. Thank you for your interest in new music and Canadian composers!
