Music Mondays

Welcome to our 30th Anniversary Season, and our 2nd Season during the COVID-19 global pandemic!

Our 2021 Season will begin on Monday June 7th and run until Labour Day, Monday Sept. 6th. Once again our concerts will be streamed on A440.live.

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 Steinway “B” Concert Grand and a superb Casavant Frères tracker-action baroque organ.

We strive to present a diverse mix of classical, jazz, world, and fusion genres to represent the diverse community we serve. This summer features an truly eclectic mix of music: Canadian icons like Quartetto Gelato, and Tom Allen with Lori Gemmel and Etsuko Kimura as well as emerging artists recently featured on the CBC's "Canada's 30 hot classical musicians under 30" list: saxophonist Jennifer Tran with aksəs quartet, pianist Jean-Luc Therrien, oudist Manar Naeem, and tenor Marcel d'Entremont. Music from a wide variety of cultures is represented: Alana & Leigh Cline - Celtic fiddle and guitar, Gloria Gift Nankunda - Western Uganda, Manar Naeem, Lamees Audeh, and Kareem El-Tyeb - the Middle East, and Jonno Lightstone, Neil Gardiner, Marcus Chonsky, Larry Lewis, Ted Sankey - the music of Cuba! The program is rounded out by well-established musicians such as guitarist Andrew MacDonald, pianists Linda Ruan and Charissa Vandikas, violinists Rebekah Wolkstein and Drew Jurecka, Laurel Swinden and Stephanie Mara - flute and piano, and a special season-closing program 20th Century Masterpieces with long-time friends of Music Mondays, Aaron Schwebel - violin and Emily Rho - piano.

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 online at A440.live to celebrate our 30th Anniversary Season - every Monday at 12:15pm from June to Labour Day!
