Thank You 2017

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Toronto Summer Music Festival, Celebrating Canada’s Sesquicentennial, was a huge success!

Here are some stats from our 2017 Festival:

  • Attendance of over 15,000
  • 20% increase in attendance over last year
  • Largest ever attendance at our reGENERATION Academy Concerts
  • 34 Fellows
  • 51 Community Academy Participants

Thank you to our individual donors whose support allowed us to present incredible music to the city of Toronto, an unparalleled educational opportunity for our Chamber Music and Art of Song Fellows, and rose to the occasion of our matching campaign to raise over $25,000!

Thank you to our corporate sponsors and government granting agencies for their generous support, and thank you to our dedicated volunteers who help make this Festival happen.

And of course, thanks to you, our audience. You are the reason we do what we do and this Festival wouldn’t happen without you.
