CONCERT SEASON STARTS AT THE ROYAL CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC
Amici Chamber Ensemble presents Komitas: A Canadian Tribute
Since opening on September 25, 2009 – the birthday of Royal Conservatory alumnus Glenn Gould – Koerner Hall has established a reputation as one of the world’s great concert halls and has emerged as one of Canada’s musical hubs. It has hosted more than 2,000 events, including nearly 1,000 concerts, reaching over 1,000,000 individuals in the GTA and around the world through recordings, touring and Livestreams. Koerner Hall holds a special place in the hearts of performers and audience members alike for its architectural beauty and acoustic excellence, and it has also become the preferred home to dozens of cultural organizations in the Greater Toronto Area.
More than half of all concerts at Koerner Hall that The Royal Conservatory has presented have featured Canadian artists. The hall has also become an invaluable training ground for students of The Royal Conservatory’s Glenn Gould School and Phil and Eli Taylor Performance Academy for Young Artists.
The diverse range of concerts and events presented over the last 10 years has enabled Koerner Hall to become a meeting place for Toronto’s cultural communities. It is home to the Grammy Award-nominated ARC Ensemble (Artists of The Royal Conservatory) as well as KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra, the latter comprised of 10 new Canadian musicians from around the world and one Métis Canadian, united by a desire to transcend cultural differences through the universal language of music.
