Syrinx Concerts Toronto first began presenting chamber music concerts in 2005. Its mandate is to promote Canadian composers; each concert in the series, performed by local, national or internationally established and emerging musicians, must include at least one Canadian composition integrated within a more familiar repertoire. Syrinx Concerts is dedicated to presenting high-quality chamber music and is committed to developing programs that build a community of chamber music players, listeners and composers. Our performers include well-established award-winning artists as well as up-and-coming young musicians who have won prestigious prizes. We encourage our performers to work with us in determining exciting programming, works that both they and the audience will feel enthusiastic about. The choice of Canadian composer is that of the musicians, as many of them have personal relationships with the composers of our day.  In supporting and encouraging our Canadian musicians we hope to offer a substantial venue for lesser-known works to be heard and appreciated alongside popular favourites.

Our concerts are held in an intimate chamber music setting at the Heliconian Club in Yorkville and all concerts are recorded for archives and the benefit of the artists. The afternoon concerts provide a relaxed atmosphere for audiences to experience the work of Canadian classical performers and composers.  After each concert there is a reception so that both the audience and artists may meet socially.


The Folks Behind It All

Dorothy Sandler Glick
Dorothy Sandler Glick


Dorothy Sandler-Glick has been immersed in the Toronto classical music community for over forty years.  Ms. Sandler-Glick obtained her ARCT diploma under the tutelage of Alberto Guerrero from the Royal Conservatory at Toronto, continued her studies in Paris, France, where she gave recitals and taught as assistant to her professor. On returning to Toronto, Ms. Sandler-Glick performed with orchestras and in solo and chamber music recitals both live and for CBC radio and premiered many news works by Canadian composers. She was on staff as a teacher for the Royal Conservatory of Music for several years and now continues to perform and teach privately. She has decades of intimate knowledge of chamber music as a performer, adjudicator, and teacher.  Once married to composer Srul Irving Glick, she and her husband were an integral part of the growing Canadian classical music scene in the 1970’s and 80’s, hosting well-attended private Salons and helping musicians network and become established. She brings that erudition as she programs each new season for Syrinx Concerts Toronto.
