Welcome to the 2021 Festival

Welcome to the 2021 Toronto Summer Music Festival! For three weeks in July New Horizons looks beyond the challenges of the pandemic, and forward to a better future. We celebrate this summer with a wonderful assortment of music from both past and present, showcasing the resilience and creativity of our featured artists.

From July 15 through August 1, you will experience an incredible line-up of chamber music, art song, and even dance, and notably the return of our TSM Academy for Emerging Artists after a one-year hiatus. Performers and composers will include Adrianne Pieczonka, Charles Richard-Hamelin, Asitha Tennekoon, Kelly-Marie Murphy, the Gryphon Trio, Alice Hong, the New Orford String Quartet, Echo Chamber Toronto, the National Academy Orchestra, Jessie Montgomery, Philip Chiu, and of course our amazing Academy Fellows and Mentors.

We are grateful to you, our fabulous patrons, supporters, donors, volunteers, and community members — your enthusiasm and support makes this all possible. Looking forward to seeing you online!

With best wishes,

Jonathan Crow
