JULY 20 TO AUGUST 14 For five years now, the Toronto Summer Music Festival has brought together famed Canadian and international luminaries of classical music for a curated series of concerts in some of the city’s top recital spaces. This season kicks off July 20 as pianist Anton Kuerti presents a solo homage to Robert Schumann, utilizing the exceptional acoustics of Koerner Hall. On July 29, Andrew Burashko and the Art of Time Ensemble draw inspiration from late-Romantic composer Erich Korngold—considered a father of the classic Hollywood film score—and the following day sees the celebrated Penderecki String Quartet performing works by four emerging composers. Various venues and times, tickets $30 to $75; call 416-408-0208 or visit here for further details.
