Singing through Centuries – a 125th anniversary gala concert

Join the TMC and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra for a very special anniversary concert in the acoustic and architectural splendour of Koerner Hall.

The concert will musically span the TMC’s 125-year history, moving from the founding year of 1894 into the future with an anniversary composition by acclaimed Cree composer Andrew Balfour.  Join us in the lobby after the concert for 125th anniversary cake.

Three works – Three centuries

Andrew Balfour: Mamihcimowin [The act of singing praises] (2019) – a partial setting in Cree of Biblical Psalm 67

Igor Stravinsky: Symphony of Psalms (1930)

Gabriel Fauré: Requiem (re-orchestration by the composer first performed in 1894)
