Happy birthday to TSM! Join us in celebrating our 10th Anniversary in this special concert. George Gershwin and Aaron Copland – America’s two most internationally revered composers – take centre stage for this dynamic program. They studied in Paris, the primary hotbed of artistic activities during the inter-war years. As this concert demonstrates, they absorbed all that was new, exciting and daring in music and brought it home to blend with the jazz and folk flavours of America. Three top-flight soloists join a special, all-star TSM Festival Ensemble to bring this sensational music to life.

Champagne reception for the entire audience after the concert!

Performance sponsor:   Jones Collombin
