Music TORONTO began in 1971 as the music program of Toronto Arts Productions, continued as Music at the Centre and CentreStage Music, and became Music TORONTO in 1987.
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, under artistic leaders Franz Kramer, Costa Pilovachi and Jane Forner, we offered a wide variety of concerts, bringing to Toronto, often for the first time, world-renowned chamber ensembles and soloists. As CentreStage Music from 1983, we were instrumental in the organization and presentation of major musical events such as the Bach 300 Festival in 1985 and special events such as musical theatre.
Since 1989, under Artistic Director Chris Wilcox, an advisory committee, and now Artistic Producer Jennifer Taylor, Music Toronto maintains its vision of artistic excellence and innovation, always featuring both international and Canadian artists. Music Toronto also enjoys an international reputation for its loyal and discerning audience.
