Music Mondays 2022

Welcome to our 31st Season, and a return to live concerts following the COVID-19 global pandemic!

Our 2022 Season will begin on Monday June 6th and run until Labour Day, Monday Sept. 5th. We plan to return to live, in-person concerts in the historic Church of the Holy Trinity, in downtown Toronto!

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 - 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 Steinway B Concert Grand and a superb Casavant Fr res tracker-action baroque organ.

This summer, a number of our performers have chosen programs which celebrate a return to live music-making... and who can blame them! The season opens with the reggae, jazz, global music of the Jason Wilson Band. And our closing program by Toronto's Odin Quartet of "Lockdown Lullabies" is a musical response to the pandemic. A number of programs celebrate the music of Canadian women, indigenous and BIPOC composers: pianist Elaine Lau in "Homelands", Andromeda Trio will premiere a new commissioned work by M tis composer Karen Sunabacka, pianist Stephanie Chua and violinist V ronique Mathieu celebrate 350 years of music by women composers in "Nannerl", and ChromaDuo (guitarists Tracy Anne Smith and Rob MacDonald) perform commissioned works for two guitars. There is jazz, of course: Jordan Klapman and 4Known, Blackwood (Peter-Anthony Togni and Jeff Reilly) explore a wide-ranging program "From Medieval Modes to Miles Davis", and we have the always-innovative Toronto Brass Quartet! And, there is music old and new: English music from the 16th and 17th centuries performed by noted Canadian countertenor Daniel Cabena with the Cardinal Consort of Viols, as well as a variety of classics performed by pianists Jui-Sheng Li, Michael Arnowitt, Cheryl Duvall, piano four-hands Megan Chang and Emily Chiang, and violinists Stelth Ng and Andrew Sords. Come on out every Monday at 12:15 pm and celebrate the end of the pandemic with our fabulous guest performers!

We are grateful for the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council, Steinway Piano Gallery Toronto, the Downtown Yonge BIA and CBC MUSIC for their continuing support, and you, our dedicated audience.

Please join us to celebrate our 31st Season - every Monday at 12:15pm from June to Labour Day!

P.S. Last year's concerts are still available to view online; just click on 'Previous Season' above!
