The month of November at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) begins with The Mozart Experience (a pair of delightful family concerts) and ushers in the holiday season with Tchaikovsky for the Holidays. In between, the TSO offers much-loved music by Beethoven, John Adams, and Ravel—in a program entitled Boléro—and presents the poignant Britten War Requiem, coinciding with the centennial of Armistice Day.
