Toronto Symphony Orchestra Single Tickets On Sale September 16 for Concerts in First Half of Season

Single tickets to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra's previously announced 2021/22 season will go on sale September 16, for concerts through to February 2022. Single tickets for the remainder of the season will go on sale at a later date when there are updated capacity limits during the winter/spring months. The first half of the season will feature shorter concerts with no intermission and works selected for smaller ensembles to allow for distance on stage.

Included in the single ticket on-sale date is the TSO's annual performance of Handel's Messiah, December 15-19. This season's version will be abridged to 85 minutes with selections of Handel's exultant arias and joyous refrains, including the iconic "Hallelujah" Chorus. RBC Resident Conductor Simon Rivard leads soloists, soprano Anna-Sophie Neher, mezzo-soprano Rihab Chaieb, tenor Spencer Britten, and bass-baritone Stephen Hegedus, and the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.

As a surprise gift to its community, the TSO presents a special FREE digital event, TSO Live Stream: Gimeno's Homecoming, conducted by Music Director Gustavo Gimeno on Thursday, October 14, 8:00pm. For his first return to Toronto since last winter, Maestro Gimeno will reunite with TSO musicians to conduct Brahms's charming Serenade No. 1, as well as a symphony by 18th-century Black composer-and champion fencer-Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, and Canadian composer Nathaniel Dett's "His Song". The concert will be available for live-stream viewing that evening and for the following seven days. The performance is free to watch, but patrons must sign up at TSO.CA/FreeStream.

In addition to the free Gimeno's Homecoming Live Stream Concert, the TSO will also stream four of its 2021/22 season concerts on November 10, November 24, January 4, and January 28. Tickets for the 2021/22 season live streams are pay-what-you-will, starting at $10. TSO Live Streams can be viewed for seven days after the initial performance. For more information, visit TSO.CA/Livestreams.

"I know that Toronto music lovers share my anticipation as we count down the days until we reunite in the concert hall. The first half of the season will reignite the feeling of exhilaration of listening to music together and offer the live stream experience for those who are not quite ready for in-person concerts. We will always meet our cherished patrons where they are and I'm looking forward to exploring these wonderful works with everyone," says Gustavo Gimeno, Music Director.

Brahms: Serenade No. 1 in D major, Op. 11

A playful symphony by 18th-century Black composer-and champion fencer-Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, opens the program. Brahms's youthful energy and command of melody shine in a Serenade written when he was just 25 years old. Between these two musical gems, the TSO string section sings in Canadian Nathaniel Dett's "His Song", a soulful and poignant depiction of African American life in the early 1900s.
