The Royal Conservatory of Music’s Koerner Hall in Toronto has announced its 2022–23 concert season, including performances from Nonesuch artists Tigran Hamasyan, Kronos Quartet, Punch Brothers, Jeremy Denk, Cécile McLorin Salvant, and Joshua Redman.

First up is Tigran Hamasyan, whose Trio shares a double bill with Majd Sekkar Quartet at Koerner Hall on Saturday, November 19.

Kronos Quartet has three Royal Conservatory events as part of the 21C Music Festival in December. On Tuesday, December 6, is A Thousand Thoughts, the live documentary with Kronos written and directed by Sam Green and Joe Bini, featuring archival footage and filmed interviews with artists like Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man, and Terry Riley, and which the Los Angeles Times called “as magical an amalgamation as you can imagine.” On Thursday, December 8, the Quartet is joined by students from The Glenn Gould School to perform pieces from the Kronos Fifty for the Future commissions at Mazzoleni Concert Hall. And on Friday, December 9, it’s back to Koerner Hall for Music for Change, a program of world and Canadian premieres, including new works composed or inspired by Steve Reich, Jimi Hendrix, Mahalia Jackson, Billie Holiday, and more.

Punch Brothers are at Koerner Hall on Sunday, December 18, to perform songs from their new album, Hell on Church Street, an homage to and reimagining of Tony Rice’s album Church Street Blues, and more.

In the new year, Jeremy Denk joins Takács Quartet on Thursday, March 23, 2023, to perform Robert Schumann's Piano Quintet in E flat Major, op. 44.

Cécile McLorin Salvant performs songs from her Nonesuch debut album, Ghost Song, and more at Koerner Hall on Thursday, March 30, 2023.

Joshua Redman brings his new Trio, Joshua Redman 3x3, to perform works by a trio of jazz giants, Ellington, Shorter, and Monk, on Saturday, April 22.

“We are very pleased to welcome audiences back to Koerner Hall for a remarkable new season of richly diverse concert performances," said President & CEO of The Royal Conservatory Dr. Peter Simon. “The Royal Conservatory is immensely grateful for the generosity of our donors and patrons who support and share our passion for bringing internationally acclaimed artists to Toronto, for developing future generations of musicians, and who understand the unique power that music has to connect people at the most profound level.”

“After two long years of stopping, starting, and postponing,” added Executive Director of Performing Arts Marvon Mehta, “Koerner Hall will once again be brimming with great artists across multiple genres. Our season will feature artists from 22 countries, six provinces, and six First Nations; and more than 30 new works will receive premieres … We invite you to join us in the belief that music can bond our fractured society by bringing people together in a shared experience.”

Over the past two years, concerts have been livestreamed on RoyalConservatory.Live platform, where select Koerner Hall performances will continue streaming.
