The Royal Conservatory of Music’s Koerner Hall in Toronto has announced its 2023–24 concert season—the venue’s fifteenth anniversary season—including performances from several artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Rhiannon Giddens, Brad Mehldau, Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet, and Richard Goode.

First up is Rhiannon Giddens, who performs songs from her new album, You’re the One, and more at Koerner Hall on Wednesday, September 20. You’re the One, due August 18, is Giddens’ third solo studio album and her first of all original songs. The concert includes an opening set from Nashville-based singer-songwriter Adia Victoria.

Brad Mehldau is one of three Nonesuch artists to perform at the hall as part of the 21C Music Festival. For his return to Koerner Hall, on Saturday, January 27, 2024, Mehldau plays a solo night of new jazz works that reflect the influences of French impressionism in thirteen passages, as well as compositions from his 2020 Nonesuch album Suite: April 2020.

Laurie Anderson returns to Koerner Hall on Friday, April 5, 2024, to perform as part of the 21C Music Festival. She is currently on tour in Europe with Sex Mob on the Let X=X tour, named after a track on her 1982 debut album, Big Science, which returned to vinyl for the first time in thirty years with a new red vinyl edition on Nonesuch in 2021.

Kronos Quartet brings Five Decades, its celebratory fiftieth anniversary season tour, to Koerner Hall on Thursday, May 9, 2024, also part of the 21C Music Festival. The performance is part of a valedictory tour with stops at esteemed concert halls in the US and around the world, including Barbican Hall in London, Carnegie Hall in New York, Cité de la musique in Paris, and Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley.

Richard Goode gives his third performance at Koerner Hall on Sunday, April 21, 2024. He performs an all-Beethoven program, including Bagatelles, Nos. 6-11, op. 119; Piano Sonata No. 30 in E Major, op. 109; and 33 Variations on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli, op. 120. The New York Times says: “It is virtually impossible to walk away from one of Mr. Goode’s recitals without the sense of having gained some new insight, subtle or otherwise, into the works he played or about pianism itself.”

Select Koerner Hall concerts will stream live via RoyalConservatory.Live. For the full Koerner Hall 2022–23 concert season and ticket details, visit rcmusic.com.
