Musical Toronto’s Weekly Critic’s Picks are a fully curated list of some of the best concerts happening now through the end of the week. Of course, this is not to say we are the provocateurs of taste, but simply seek to provide a good weekly summary.
Around this time of year we start to see a number of arts presenters make the transition between the 2013/14 and the 2014/15 seasons. No doubt we will be seeing more of these as the spring thaw progresses, but this week we find events for The Toronto Consort, and Music Toronto, and The Larkin Singers, U of T, Glenn Gould School, Gaudeamus Muzieweek, Canadian Opera Company and Khatia Buniatishvili.
It’s incredible just how much goes on in Toronto each week – everything from world-class classical music and opera events, to our very own local performers and arts groups offering glimpses into the music of tomorrow. Our weekly Critic’s Picks is a fully curated list of some of the best concerts going on now through the end of the week. Of course this is not to say we are the provocateurs of taste, but simply strive to provide a good weekly summary. For a look at the full breadth of what’s available in and around Toronto, check out the comprehensive concert listings from our friends at Wholenote Magazine.
