A Symphonic Birthday Party - TSO @ Luminato

A Symphonic Birthday Party with The Toronto Symphony Orchestra

In what is becoming a beloved annual Luminato tradition, the full forces of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Music Director Peter Oundjian, again performs for free under the stars at the Festival Hub. At last year’s Festival, the TSO’s closing night Symphonic Finale broke attendance records at David Pecaut Square.

This year, the crowd is anticipated to grow even larger, filling every available space for a vibrant musical party in celebration of the 200th birthdays of composers Richard Wagner and Giuseppe Verdi. Highlights will include several of the Wagner gems we all first learned from classic Bugs Bunny cartoons. In the magnificent Verdi and Wagner choruses, the TSO is joined by the glorious voices of the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir. The concert will also include an energetic work by the great Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer who turns 80 this year.

Don’t be surprised if a rousing version of “Happy Birthday,” done up in grand TSO style, also finds its way onto the Square.

JOINING INSTRUCTIONS

Please bring your chair or a blanket and look for us on the lawn.  Bring snacks even!

We'll be holding TFCM signs.  We will try, but we cannot guarantee to hold space for you - it will be VERY crowded! So we urge you to arrive at least 60 minutes early.

If our event is full, please feel free to attend without signing up.

Outdoor events take place rain or shine: come prepared! For those sweltering summer days, keep a water bottle and sunscreen handy to beat the heat. Thunderstorms on the radar? Don’t forget your umbrella.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
