Toronto Summer Music gala on July 21 features a sizzling night of Hot Jazz

TORONTO…Toronto Summer Music will host a gala fundraising dinner concert on Monday, July 21 at The York Club (135 St. George Street) featuring the Hot Jazz String Quartet.  The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails in The Garden.  Proceeds from the event support The Toronto Summer Music Academy. Tickets are $250 per person and may be purchased by contacting Eli Clarke at Toronto Summer Music, 647-430-5699 ext. 114 or .
The Toronto Summer Music Academy is a one-of-a-kind educational opportunity for chamber musicians and singers 18-35 years old, who are on the threshold of a professional career.  These exceptionally gifted young musicians hail from around the world and are chosen through a rigorous selection process by an international jury panel of specialists led by TSM Artistic Director Douglas McNabney.  Each year, 30 young musicians are invited to participate in the program where they study with international faculty of the highest quality and reputation.  Limited enrolment and a full scholarship covering tuition ensure the highest quality participants.  Academy Fellows, as the program participants are named, study with international guest artists, known as TSM Mentors, who perform at the Toronto Summer Music Festival.   As part of the Academy experience these young musicians have the opportunity to perform with these guest artists in Mentors & Fellows concerts and numerous daytime concerts. The Toronto Summer Music Academy offers two programs: The Chamber Music Institute (July 20 to August 9) for piano and strings, and The Art of Song Program for singers and pianists (July 26 to August 9).
