Meet Me Here: Songs of Sanctuary
A free TMC concert to conclude the 2022 Choral Conductors’ Symposium
In June, Artistic Director Jean-Sébastien Vallée welcomes five emerging conductors from Canada and the U.S. for a week of intensive workshops and rehearsals with the full Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and the 20-voice professional ensemble of the TMC.
The Symposium concludes with a concert where all five participating conductors will conduct the two choirs.
The theme for the repertoire of this year’s Symposium is Songs of Sanctuary: a musical reflection on the meaning of exile and sanctuary through the works of Caroline Shaw, Paul Hindemith, Roderick Williams, Benjamin Britten, and many others.
Enjoy this free concert of great choral music – and see some future conducting leaders in action. Patrons will be able to attend in person and also online through the concert livestream. Details on how to get tickets will be released in the spring.
