November 5, 2018
Tickets go on sale Friday, November 9.
Due to popular demand, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) is adding an extra performance of Gustavo Gimeno Conducts The Firebird on Friday, June 28, 2019, at 7:30pm at Roy Thomson Hall.
The recent announcement of Maestro Gimeno as the TSO’s next Music Director has thrilled Torontonians, and the growing anticipation of his arrival has led to a great demand for the June concerts. These June performances will be Gimeno’s first in Toronto since being named the TSO’s next Music Director. The program, anchored by the famous Stravinsky suite The Firebird, also features Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 1 “Classical”—one of the composer’s most popular works—and spotlights TSO Concertmaster Jonathan Crow in Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, which combines brilliant solo writing and symphonic intensity.
Acclaimed for his ability to elicit fresh and vibrant performances, Gustavo Gimeno has conducted leading orchestras in Europe, North America, and Japan, and became Music Director of the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg in 2015. Maestro Gimeno, who made his Canadian début with the TSO in February 2017, has signed a five-year contract with the TSO to begin in the 2020/21 season.
Tickets for the June 28 performance of Gustavo Gimeno Conducts The Firebird go on sale Friday, November 9. Pre-sale for TSO subscribers and donors begins on Monday, November 5. Tickets are available for purchase online at TSO.CA, by phone (416.593.1285), and in person at the TSO Patron Services Centre or the Roy Thomson Hall Box Office.
