Welcome to the 27th Season of Music Mondays!
After a highly successful 26th Anniversary Season last summer, we are excited to welcome you to our 2018 season of lunchtime concerts. Music Mondays has served as a launching pad for emerging talent, and celebration of established local talent since its inception in 1992. Our concerts take place in the warm acoustics of Holy Trinity Church, just steps away from the Eaton Centre. Our goal is to provide the highest possible musical experience to a pay-what-you-can downtown Toronto audience. Our audience includes office workers, tourists, retired folks, young children, the homeless, students and the musically curious. The acoustics of Holy Trinity are very special - warm and inviting. The church boasts two fine instruments – a newly acquired Steinway “B” Concert Grand and a superb Casavant Frères tracker-action baroque organ.
We strive to present an eclectic mix of classical, light-classical, jazz, world and fusion genres. This is reflected in the wide array of musicians we have represented this summer: a number of emerging and JUNO award winning ensmebles, such as Payadora Tango Ensemble, juntQín keyboard collective, Catalyst Ensemble, The Florian Hoefner Trio, Allison Au Quartet, Azuline Duo, Ardan Duo, The Bedford Trio, and Concordo. Recent immigrants to Canada, Padideh Ahrarnejad and Ali Massoudi will present a program of Persian music from their native Iran. In addition, we will be treated to performances from some of Canada's finest soloists: Matthew Larkin-organ, Sheng Cai-piano, Britton Riley-cello and Emily Rho-piano. Our long-time association with CBC Radio 2 continues as performances of Tony Yike Yang-piano and Michael Bridge-accordions with Kornel Wolak-carinet will be recorded for broadcast. Our concerts are informal, open and accessible to all.
With the generous assistance of Steinway Piano Gallery Toronto, we have achieved our goal to acquire a first-rate performance quality piano for our musicians to perform on. We sincerely thank the Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council, Downtown Yonge BIA and CBC Radio Two for their continuing support, and you, our dedicated audience.
Please join us for this, our 27th Season. Bring your lunch – and a friend – every Monday at 12:15pm from May to Labour Day..
