Festival Description

The finest artists from the world of chamber music will comes to Toronto each summer. Each year a Festival theme is set to highlight the performances of distinguished artists. TSM Festival programming this year includes concerts, master classes, lectures, and workshops. The TSM Academy for highly talented emerging artists is intertwined with the Festival. While the Festival is the public showcase of world class performance and interpretation of the classics, the Academy is the preparation ground for achieving these standards. The goal of the TSM educational program is to help young musicians who are preparing for international competitions – 200 of whom have been chosen through a rigorous selection process – achieve the highest quality of performance. The Academy creates the space for seasoned professional artists to transmit their secrets of interpretation and to offer the technical help each artist needs to apply these secrets to their work.
