The TMC has a 121-year history of bringing great choral music, performed at the highest level, to audiences in Toronto and beyond through performances, tours and recordings. Since 2012 the TMC has added webcasting as another way to share choral masterworks with a larger audience. The TMC is thrilled to announce that, thanks to the generous support of some long-time TMC donors, the Choir will webcast four concerts in the 2015/16 season (an increase from three during 2014/15):
- German Romantics with pianist André Laplante, November 25, 2015 from Koerner Hall
- Festival of Carols with the Canadian Staff Band, December 9, 2015 from Yorkminster Park Baptist Church
- TMC Choral Conductors’ Symposium concert featuring five conductors, January 30, 2016 from Yorkminster Park Baptist Church
- Haydn’s Creation with orchestra and soloists, April 27, 2016 from Koerner Hall
Concerts will be webcast on the Livestream platform at Livestream.com/TMChoir. Concerts are filmed in high definition using multiple cameras, providing different angles for viewers, including a look at the conductor in action. Concerts remain accessible for streaming on the Livestream site for a number of months following the concert.
Patrons agree that nothing tops the emotion and connection felt when experiencing a performance live in a concert hall or church venue. But for those who can’t make it to a performance, or who want to revisit a concert they attended, webcasting brings the concert to them. During the 2014/15 season three TMC concerts on Livestream were watched over 12,000 times by viewers from across Canada, the U.S., Europe, South America and beyond. Livestream reported that TMC concerts are in the top 20% most viewed events on Livestream.
The 2015 Festival of Carols webcast is made possible by the generous support of Lloyd and Dorothy Chiotti. The two Koerner Hall webcasts are made possible by a TMC donor who wishes to remain anonymous. They all share with the TMC a vision to make great choral music, performed at the highest level, accessible to more people.
