The Royal Conservatory Announces Winter and Spring Concert Updates

Looking beyond the current lockdown, stay at home orders, restrictions on international travel, and quarantines, The Royal Conservatory is required to reschedule or cancel many of the upcoming concerts. Below is a list of the most current status and, for the concerts that have yet to be determined or have a new date pending, the Conservatory will issue updates periodically. The Conservatory thanks its patrons and supporters for continued understanding, patience, and support.

"The continuing COVID-19 crisis and the ensuing government regulations have, once again, forced us to recalibrate our concert season. We are grateful to all of the artists who have enabled us to postpone their Koerner Hall appearances and we look forward to seeing them soon," said Executive Director of Performing Arts, Mervon Mehta. "Our subscribers, donors, and ticket buyers have shown enormous loyalty and patience to us - our thanks to all of you. In the meantime, we will continue to present virtual concerts as much as possible and plan for the day when we can all sit in a dark theatre once again listening to sublime performances."
