February 28, 2011 // Toronto, ON – Honouring the very best of Canada’s classical music community, Roy Thomson Hall and The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) are proud to announce details for OVATION. Celebrating Canadian classical musicians, this is the only music event of its kind that is part of JUNO Week in Toronto and the JUNO Awards’ 40th Anniversary celebrations.
An historic evening, hosted by TSO Music Director Peter Oundjian, OVATION boasts performances from some of today’s most gifted and dynamic artists including JUNO Award winner Measha Brueggergosman who is also nominated this year for Classical Album of the Year: Vocal or Choral Performance; Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra which is among the most nominated artists in the JUNO Awards classical genres with 37 nominations; Gryphon Trio, Amici Ensemble, and Winona Zelenka, all nominated this year for Classical Album of the Year: Solo or Chamber Ensemble; 2011 nominee Anton Kuerti who was the first recipient of a classical music JUNO Award in 1977 for Best Classical Album of the Year; Lara St. John and Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà, 2011 nominees for Classical Album of the Year: Large Ensemble or Soloist(s) with Large Ensemble Accompaniment; and Duo Concertante who will perform R. Murray Schafer's Duo for Violin and Piano, which is nominated this year for Classical Composition of the Year.
As an indication of the breadth of talent in Canada’s classical music community, the classical music categories are the largest number of awards handed out in any one genre of music at the JUNO Awards. OVATION at Roy Thomson Hall is a gathering place for those who love classical music as it will mark the first time that so many classical music nominees, past and present, will gather under one roof to make music together and celebrate its cultural achievements.
This concert is co-presented with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS).
