Orchestra Toronto has cancelled the two remaining concerts for the 2019-20 season scheduled at Meridian Arts Centre in North York.

As a show of support and good faith, Orchestra Toronto will continue to pay its musicians and administrative staff through the COVID-19 crisis.

“This is a difficult time, and we understand that many arts workers face serious financial losses. We are proud of our Board’s unanimous decision to continue full financial support of our paid artistic and administrative staff during this extremely unusual time,” said Sharyn Goldberg, Chair of the Orchestra Toronto Board of Directors.

“As a community and as an orchestra, we are doing our best to take care of our people. Fortunately, we have some reserves, and right now, this is the most responsible thing we can do with them,” said Jennie Worden, Executive Director of Orchestra Toronto. “While we don’t have some of the resources available to larger organizations, and we are of course disappointed that we won’t be able to connect in person and perform our final two programmes for our amazing audiences, we’re really excited about what our artistic team will be able to do to help make everyone’s lives more enjoyable, while we all keep as safe as we can.”

The orchestra are currently developing a series of online events to keep the music going.
