The Royal Conservatory of Music has announced part of the lineup for its 15th concert season, which includes performances by Samara Joy, Terence Blanchard, Christian McBride, Brad Mehldau and Robi Botos.

More than 30 live concerts were announced to be coming to Koerner Hall in Toronto in the coming year, with the entire lineup of more than 80 events to be revealed this June.

“Night after night, audiences have shown us how starved they have been for live music played by great artists in an exceptional hall,” said Mervon Mehta, executive director of performing arts at the Royal Conservatory. “We are also acutely aware of how devastating the past three years has been on musicians and how thrilled they are to return to making music for all of us. The 2023-24 season is filled with some of our dearest friends and 16 artists and ensembles who will make their debuts with us. As usual, Canadian talent sits comfortably alongside their international counterparts and our students continue to shine ever brighter. We encourage you to come to your favourites but also to try something new. You will not be disappointed.”

This season’s jazz series features performances by established stalwarts as well as up-and-coming stars.
