Summer Music in the Garden Artistic Director Tamara Bernstein will retire after heading the series for 20 years.

Appointed in 2001, Bernstein’s tenure saw the growth of Summer Music In The Garden from infancy at the iconic Music Garden, and most recently online.

Many artists presented under Bernstein’s tenure have gone on to have celebrated careers, including soprano Jane Archibald, the Cecilia String Quartet and cellist Elinor Frey.

Tamara Bernstein’s taste for programming was often indicative of the multi-cultural audiences in Toronto. Artists ranged from traditional chamber music, Indigenous works, as well as music from Brazil, Mumbai, Japan, Ukraine, and Bulgaria.

“For 20 years as Artistic Director, Tamara has created opportunities for hundreds of artists and brought world-class programming to the Toronto Music Garden,” said Marah Braye, CEO, Harbourfront Centre.

The series will continue through 2021 at the Music Garden in Toronto, with new works commissioned for 2022.

“It was an enormous privilege to bring music and dance to Toronto’s central waterfront, free of charge, for 20 years,” said Bernstein in a statement. “Thank you to everyone who made these fleeting moments of urban utopia possible…”
