Dear Friends of TSM, 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that the 2020 Toronto Summer Music Festival is officially cancelled. 

For the safety of everyone in our community, at home and abroad, we cannot in good conscience put on a Festival and Academy that centres around large gatherings, social events, and close ensemble work, given the current extent and spread of COVID-19. 

We hope you will join us next year to celebrate music and community together once again. 

If you have already purchased tickets or passes to TSM2020, please contact the RCM Box Office at 416-408-0208 or tickets@rcmusic.ca (Monday-Friday, 12pm-5pm) to discuss your options by June 30, 2020. You may: 

  1. Donate the value of your ticket(s) (less RCM service charges) to Toronto Summer Music in return for a tax receipt; or, 
  1. Request a refund of the full price of your ticket(s) to your original method of payment. 

The RCM Box Office will begin taking calls starting Monday, April 13. Please note that email and call volume may be high with limited box office staff, and tickets may be refunded or a tax receipt issued on a delayed schedule. 

Given our need to cancel amid a highly uncertain time in the non-profit arts sector, we kindly encourage you to consider Option 1. Any support you can offer would be greatly appreciated during these difficult times. Rest assured TSM remains dedicated to its mission and community and will continue being a vibrant organization and festival for years to come. 

This is a difficult time for everyone, and we hope you and your loved ones are doing well despite the challenges. We look forward to a time when we can gather and experience the joy that communal music-making brings us all. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns. 

Yours truly, 

Jonathan Crow, Artistic Director 
Vanessa J Goymour, Executive Director 
Sandra Forbes, Chair of the TSM Board of Directors
