Mooredale Concerts at Walter Hall U of T

Welcome to our 2016-17 Season!

An exciting season of Canadian and international talents hailing from England, South Korea, and America. We begin with a celebrated Canadian string quartet, followed by 20th Century music performed, opera-style.  An acclaimed pianist takes us through musical ages, all based on Bach.  A young violin virtuoso struts his prize winning skills.  A ground-breaking British string quartet makes their Canadian debut, and a breaking-ground Canadian string quartet returns by popular demand.
