About

The TSO is recognized internationally as one of the world’s great orchestras. More than 300,000 patrons hear the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto each year, and an additional five million Canadians tune in to frequent concert broadcasts on CBC Radio. International tours have taken the Toronto Symphony Orchestra to such hallowed destinations as the Musikverein in Vienna, New York’s Carnegie Hall, and other prestigious venues throughout the USA, Japan, Australia, Europe, and the Canadian North.

Founded in 1922, The New Symphony Orchestra, as it was then called, gave its first performance in April 1923 at Massey Hall. Since then, artistic leadership has included Sir Ernest MacMillan (1931-1956); Seiji Ozawa (1965-1970); Sir Andrew Davis, now Conductor Laureate (1975-1988); Günther Herbig (1988-1994) and Jukka-Pekka Saraste (1994-2001). Peter Oundjian began his tenure as Music Director in the fall of 2004.
