Music Mondays 2023

Welcome to our 32nd Season of summer-lunchtime concerts!

Our 2023 Season will begin on Monday June 5th and run until Labour Day, Monday Sept. 4th. Concerts take place at 12:15 in the historic Church of the Holy Trinity, Trinity Square.

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 Frčres tracker-action baroque organ.

This summer, our concerts once again represent an eclectic mix of classical, light-classical, world, and jazz performances! The season opens with a Celebration of Persian Music with Ali Massoudi and Padideh Ahrarnejad featuring a variety of instruments such as the tar, setar, tombak, and daf, among others. Other world music programs will include the flamenco music of Lara Wong Trio as well as trumpet music from Brazil and Canada with trumpeters Aaron Hodgson and Nikola Locatelli. Our wonderful Steinway concert grand will receive quite a work-out with La Fiammata Piano Duo (Linda Ruan and Charissa Vandikas) and the gifted Canadian piano soloist Victoria Wong, recording live for CBC MUSIC. Many concerts will feature small ensembles such as the Odin Quartet with pianist Alex Panizza; the Ezra Duo (Jacob Clewell, viola and Sasha Bult-Ito, piano); Coriolis Trio (Jung Tsai, violin, cellist Rebecca Morton, and Tomoko Inui, piano); Ensemble Elatós (Matthew Cohen, viola, Noémie Raymond-Friset, cello, Zhenni Li-Cohen, piano) in an innovative program "Femmetastique"; and Italian clarinetist Marco Verza will be performing the beloved Mozart Clarinet Quintet with the Toronto Concert Orchestra String Quartet, and a commissioned work dedicated to Maestro Kerry Stratton. Of course, we will have some Jazz with the Jesse Dietschi Trio, and organist Conrad Gold will perform on the church's superb Casavant tracker organ on July 3 during the RCCO Festival of Pipes, Canada 2023! Come on out every Monday this summer at 12:15 pm and enjoy some beautiful music in downtown Toronto 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 32nd Season - every Monday at 12:15pm from June to Labour Day!
