Media High Notes: September 2022

Discover September’s Media High Notes
October 14, 2022

From previews to reviews to interviews and more, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra regularly receives interesting and insightful media coverage from a wide variety of sources. Here’s a summary of our most recent and notable press: 

CEO Mark Williams spoke with the Toronto Star’s Shinan Govani about “feeling that first wow,” and with Toronto Life about the “best way to put more butts in seats,” among other topics. 

The palpable excitement of our season-opening concert, Gimeno Conducts Chopin & Scheherazade, clearly wasn’t lost on the critics. In his review for The Globe and Mail, Michael Zarathus-Cook said, “the TSO has found a formula that works.” La Scena Musicale called the kick-off concert “a fine example of [Maestro Gimeno’s] artistic vision.” And barczablog declared it “electrifying.”

Our TSO100: Open House & Free Concert garnered a lot of buzz thanks to Barrett Principal Education Conductor & Community Ambassador Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser’s interview with Ismaila Alfa on CBC’s Metro Morning and appearance on CP24 Breakfast, where the team tried their hand at colouring our custom Roy Thomson Hall and musician illustrations.

Among the many successes announced at our Annual General Meeting was a particularly significant one—the elimination of our accumulated deficit after more than 40 years. “The Toronto Symphony is not only back,” reported The Globe and Mail, “it is in black.” And the Toronto Star called it, “paving the way for a ‘clean slate’ as [the TSO] heads into the second century of operations.”
