An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until November 18, 2021


Some of the most stunningly beautiful works in all of classical music will stir the soul as the TSO’s fabulous strings and harp take centre stage. Mahler’s heart-rending Adagietto from his Symphony No. 5 utterly captivates and seemingly stops time. An 11th-century poem by Omar Khayyám inspired pop-influenced grooves in the music of Dinuk Wijeratne, and Kelly-Marie Murphy’s Rains of Ash and Embers extols Canada’s natural wonders while contemplating our role in preserving them. A brief but life-changing moment between two young lovers plays out amid a backdrop of moonlit trees and unabashedly sensuous music in Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night).
