The eighth edition of the 21C Music Festival will include four livestreams from Saturday, January 16 to Thursday, February 18, 2021, and will feature a plethora of Canadian women, as three of the four events will be performed exclusively by women: violinist Angèle Dubeau with her string ensemble La Pietà, whose mission has concentrated on an ongoing quest for virtuosity, aimed at making outstanding music accessible to all audiences while offering new repertoires drawn from a wide variety of musical influences; pianist Eve Egoyan, whose intense focus, command of the instrument, insightful interpretations, and unique programs welcome audiences into unknown territory; and pianist, award winner, and Royal Conservatory alumna Morgan-Paige Melbourne, who brings a her own no-holds-barred approach to contemporary music.

The 21C Music Festival will include 11 world premieres by five Canadian composers (Eve Egoyan, Kathryn Knowles, Morgan-Paige Melbourne, Corie Rose Soumah, Nauroz Tanya), 1 North American premiere (Pierre Jodlowski), and 1 Ontario premiere (Nicole Lizée).

Livestream tickets are available online at or by telephone at 416.408.0208.
