21C Music of the 21st Century Festival Launch at Koerner Hall

A festival of open minded mega-modern composition and performance will be coming to Bloor Street in Toronto during the 4th weekend in May. Heavy hitters Stewart Copeland, Don Byron and Kaija Saariaho will be flanked by a kaleidoscopic collider of  particularly energizing artists.

  1. Hey Paul. Great to meet you last night. I am actually the head of audio for Koerner hall and the RCM, and not the TD. I wear the TD hat in other places. Cheers. Ian
