Your chance to eavesdrop on musical jollity in Toronto: on-line gala benefiting the Royal Conservatory of Music

The Resounding Concert - Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto
One of the effects of the way much of classical music is going on-line, as a result of the present crisis, is that we can eavesdrop on events which are taking place a long way away, and which in normal circumstances would be unavailable to us. 

The Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) in Toronto, Canada is having an on-line gala event on 17 October 2020, The Resounding Concert which will feature a number of well-known performers who have performed at RCM's Koerner Hall, including sopranos Sondra Radvanovsky, and Barbara Hannigan, pianists Lang Lang and Jan Lisiecki (who is an alumnus of the conservatory), violinists James Ehnes and Daniel Hope, along with artists from other performing worlds including actress Meryl Streep, the singer k.d.lang and the singer/songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie.

The live-stream is free, but the conservatory is soliciting donations, and if you live in the area there are all sorts of other ways you can support. Full details from the RCM's website.
