As part of Music Director Gustavo Gimeno’s commitment to supporting and developing Canadian talent, three early-career composers—Matthew-John Knights, Fjóla Evans, and Luis Ramirez—will be mentored and have a five-minute piece performed in the season. The TSO RBC Affiliate Composer will work with the composers and foster an ongoing relationship that creates fertile ground for these artists who are at pivotal stages in their careers.
