Welcome to the 26th Season of Music Mondays!
After a highly successful 25th Anniversary Season last summer, we are excited to welcome you to our 2017 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.
In celebration of this Canada 150th Anniversary year, all of our programs will include works performed and/or composed by Canadians. 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. Everything from visiting international organists Willem Hörmann and Hans Uwe Hielscher in recital, to the jazz stylings of Bill McBirnie and Bernie Senensky, to the virtuosity of piano performers such as Penny Johnson, Joseph Ferretti, Elaine Lau and Koichi Inoue, the world/fusion music of Music:India Quartet, Jason Wilson and the Perennials and Dilectica to larger ensembles like Wintergarten Orchestra, Tom Allen and Friends, Marco Verza & Odin String Quartet and the Toronto Chamber Players. 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 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 26th Season. Bring your lunch – and a friend – every Monday at 12:15pm from May through the end of August.
