LISTINGS Event listings

LISTINGS Event listings in The WholeNote are free to all eligible music presenters. Under ordinary circumstances the listings in the magazine are arranged in five sections: GTA and BEYOND GTA (concerts); MUSIC THEATRE; CLUBS; and what we call our ETCETERAS, (all kinds of date-related musical events that don’t fit the other 4 sections). But these are not ordinary circumstances. So right now GTA and ETCETERAS are all you will find here, mostly in the area of online and livestreamed concerts, fundraisers, masterclasses, etcetera. Our listings are being updated online on a weekly basis, so our website is the place to be, to keep up with online events as well as live listings as they start to come back, and new seasons as they are announced. Most of our online listings can be searched in various ways – by date ranges, types of music and geographic zones (see map to the right). These expanded ETCETERAS are still a work in progress! Visit for performance listings, and for online activity. All further inquiries should be addressed to our listings editor John Sharpe at or 416-323-2232 x27. (Please note we do not take listings information over the phone.)

Following many months of isolation and remote music making, the musicians of Tafelmusik gather for an emotional return to the concert stage. Filmed at Koerner Hall, TELUS Centre, this opening program of the reimagined 2020/21 season is devoted to chamber music originally intended to be played in private homes and salon gatherings among friends and family. Scored for two to eight instruments, these intimate works — almost all of them new to our musicians — capture the immediacy and connection we’ve all been craving. On display will be a more playful side of titans like Mozart, Beethoven, and Boccherini, including a movement from Mozart’s famous Sinfonia concertante in E-flat Major in an unusual arrangement for six string instruments, along with music by Michael Haydn, Družeckŷ, Sperger, and Spohr — classical composers eclipsed by these giants. An unforgettable homecoming. For more information, visit ● TD Toronto Jazz Festival. Summer Concert Series: A Live-to-Air Weekly Series on JAZZ.FM91. Running from July 3 to August 28, each weekly performance will air live on JAZZ.FM91, every Friday from 5 pm to 6 pm. From now until the spring of next year, the Festival will be offering a variety of ways to support musicians, and for the public to experience live music, through efforts such as the Summer Concert Series, because we know there is nothing better than live music. Online concerts, fundraisers, workshops, masterclasses? September 2020 | 35
