“The TSO’s 95th performance season is a fusion of genres encompassing future masterworks, hidden gems, and familiar masterpieces,” notes Music Director Peter Oundjian. 2016/17 will mark many noteworthy TSO débuts and awaited returns, and feature new commissions, cross-genre performances, and exciting collaborations. Starting with Opening Night: Renée Fleming (September 21, 2016), highlights of 2016/17 comprise the continuation of The Decades Project—in partnership with the AGO; an expanded series of films with live orchestra—in partnership with TIFF—including the first instalment of The Lord of the Rings trilogy; the 13th annual New Creations Festival, curated by Owen Pallett; the Mozart@261 Festival at Koerner Hall; and the return of the popular Chinese New Year Celebration. The stellar lineup of guest soloists includes Yuja Wang, Itzhak Perlman, Jann Arden, Yefim Bronfman, Garrick Ohlsson, Jan Lisiecki, the Kronos Quartet, Emanuel Ax, Tanya Tagaq, Wallis Giunta, and Nicola Benedetti. The TSO also welcomes guest conductors Stéphane Denève, Bernard Labadie, Long Yu, John Storgårds, Hannu Lintu, Karina Canellakis, Thomas Dausgaard, Gianandrea Noseda, and Kristjan Järvi.
From series like Young People’s Concerts and Light Classics to Masterworks, Exposed, Casual, and Pops—and Special Performances—the TSO has something for everyone. Concerts recently added include Arabian Nights on May 3, 2017, featuring Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade (a TSO signature piece); and CA-NA-DA!, a nostalgic journey through the best of popular music from Canadian stage and screen, starring Canadian jazz singer Heather Bambrick, on June 10 & 11, 2017.
In January 2017, the TSO launches its Canada 150 project—Canada Mosaic—with Canadian Legacy, a concert kicking off many events to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. A year-long project and nationwide Signature Initiative of Canada 150, Canada Mosaic will feature 20 unique programs, the commissioning of 38 brief orchestral pieces and 11 major works, the creation of a website and an e-learning platform, and collaborations with 37 Canadian orchestras. Details will be announced shortly.
This season, the TSO brings back the always-popular Compose Your Own three-show package, starting at $70, and the ever-successful TSOUNDCHECK program, which allows patrons from 15 to 35 to take advantage of $16 tickets (among other benefits).
The TSO Season Presenting Sponsor is BMO Financial Group.
