YOU

Music is an integral part of your life - and you are music.

Music defines, enhances, and elevates.

It provides context, reference, and meaning to what you do and who you are.

It combines physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being.

Students, alumni, artists, researchers, and educators - you are our community.

Your voice.

Our sound.

Ensemble.

From the Dean

Welcome to the University of Toronto Faculty of Music! To what we hope will be one of the great adventures of your life!

Home to a diverse and dynamic community of scholars, performers, composers, and educators, the UofT Faculty of Music has long been a Canadian leader. Well-grounded in classical and jazz traditions, UofT Music believes in diversity and thinks globally, as our range of musical cultures, styles and ideas shows.

As part of the University of Toronto, Canada’s highest-ranked research-intensive university (currently ranked 20th worldwide and 15th in Arts & Humanities), the Faculty of Music  provides a superb learning environment, a teaching staff of international renown, excellent performance halls, and a music library collection that is a national treasure. Throughout the academic year and beyond, the Faculty is home to  master classes by visiting artists, lectures by leading scholars, recitals and concerts by our own distinguished artists and ensembles, as well as by touring and festival performers. Your teachers are proud to share their professional knowledge and passion for music. They invite you to join them in bringing music to the community and to the world.

Going forward, we expect to be recognized by all as one of the top music schools in the world for Performance, Leadership, and Research. We are embarking on a major renewal of our programs and facilities that will reaffirm our national leadership position and establish our global presence in musical training, interdisciplinary research, and digital media content development. The key goals of the current University of Toronto Boundless campaign are: Meeting Global Challenges, and Preparing Global Citizens. For Music, this means Boundless Creativity! Music and the performing arts in general have major roles to play in helping secure the global future. As musicians and musical thinkers you can play a major role in that enterprise as tomorrow’s creative leaders.

Our students participate in colloquia, conferences, large-scale concerts, solo and chamber performances, recordings, teaching opportunities, and professional engagements that provide them with broad practical experience. You will find our alumni teaching at top research universities and conservatoires, performing as featured soloists or ensemble members in prominent orchestras and opera companies, and training new generations of musical citizens in schools and community organizations around the world. 

Our mission is academic and artistic excellence in musical creation, performance, education, and research. Our role is to provide our students with the best possible range and quality of academic and artistic experiences. Yours is to explore those many opportunities made available to you, and to create new ones in your own unique voice. We invite you to immerse yourself in the programs and course listings of this year’s Calendar. And we invite your feedback on what we can do together to enhance your learning experience.

Boundless Creativity captures the sense of discovery, innovation, and interaction that we hope will characterize your time at the University of Toronto. Make the most of your opportunities with our faculty, facilities, and location - as part of one of the world's great universities in the heart of one of of North America's great cities.

With best wishes for your artistic and academic studies,

And for the life-changing experiences that lie ahead.

US

We are music.

We are musicians all: researchers, educators, creators, performers - students of all that is around us.

We give form to thought, emotion, and experience.

We celebrate effort, accomplishment, moments and outcomes.

And, working  together with you, the music lives on.

 

                                                              

TOGETHER we...

CREATE ...PRODUCE

We create new music through programs in Composition, Jazz, Film/Media and Large Ensembles. We create new music through our composer-in-residence programs, our Electronic Music Studio and our GamUT Contemporary Ensemble. And we celebrate new music annually through our New Music Festival with its Distinguished Visitor and our Karen Kieser Composition Prize.

We produce new music through our Opera and Early Music programs. New stagings of classic and contemporary operas that train professional singers, instrumentalists, stage directors, repetiteurs, and coaches. And we celebrate annually with a new fully staged, orchestrated opera on an original libretto through UofT Opera and our Opera Student Composer Collective. 

 

PLAY...PERFORM

 

Many languages make reference to the ludic qualities of music making: play in English, jouer en français, spielen auf Deutsch.

Do you play an instrument? Are you interested in performing at the highest level?

Our goal is to give you the best foundational technical and finest advanced artistic training possible through private studio teaching with many of Toronto’s top professional teachers and players. While with us, you will play in well-coached UofT chamber music ensembles (strings, winds, brass, percussion, piano, guitar, early music, contemporary music, world music) and perform in UofT’s renowned large ensembles (opera, orchestra, winds, choirs, early music).

And you can also get professional playing experience through our Music Booking Office.

 

TEACH...LEARN

Schoenberg introduced his 1911 Theory of Harmony text with the words “I have learned this book from my students.”

At UofT Music we believe that the Teaching / Learning relationship is a powerful dialogue where enthusiasm meets experience and together we act in the service of musical creation, expression, and understanding.

We love teaching...and we’re still learning.

Our award-winning professors, lecturers, and professionals work with undergraduates from day one. Our graduate students are mentored by outstanding professionals in their fields.

And we teach the next generation of great teachers through our Education and Pedagogy programs.

 

THINK...DO

One of the added-values of being at a great music school inside a great university is the level of thinking that goes on.

Our academic programs in music—from Theory and Composition, to History and Culture, along with your training in Education and Performance—develop your critical thinking abilities to an exceptional level.

So that you not only do music, you think music.

Your undergraduate music degree program also includes opportunities to take a range of courses in Arts & Science or other subject areas from the greater UofT and its distinctive College system...and you have access to a Music Library that ranks as one of the best in the world.

As you build your fluency and expertise relation between Think and Do, between thought and action becomes seamless.

Naming the Faculty

In his previous position, Dean McLean was in part responsible for the largest naming gift to a performing arts faculty in Canada’s history. The Faculty of Music was not named in UofT’s previous campaign. What a Boundless opportunity for a visionary philanthropist! It is now Toronto and UofT’s turn.

MacMillan Theatre Major Capital Renovation Project

State-of-the-art when it opened in 1964, this home venue for our renowned UofT Opera and large ensemble programs, with its still awesome stage and fly tower, is overdue for a transformative renewal that will return it to world-class status as a theatre for opera production and related performing arts presentations, training, and digital presence.

New Spaces for Music in the 90QP (90 Queen’s Park) Major Capital Project

In September 2014, UofT announced exciting plans for the transformation of the 90 Queen’s Park site in partnership with multiple stakeholders inside and outside of the University. For the Faculty of Music, the 90QP project will create a “New Recital Hall” (a world-class space and high-profile naming opportunity), and will provide direct connection from Philosopher’s Walk to Queen’s Park Crescent and Avenue Road through the Edward Johnson Building and into the Atrium of the new complex with its New Recital Hall and related spaces for performance and conference activities.

Music Library Naming Opportunity & Capital Renovation Project

UofT’s Music Library collection is a national treasure and one of the top four music research libraries in North America. Moved to a largely subterranean new wing in 1990, the Music Library offers a stellar naming opportunity for an enlightened donor. Renovation plans focus on creating a modern teaching and learning environment to complement our ongoing responsibility for the preservation and development of this amazing collection.

MaHRC (Music and Health Research Collaboratory) Naming & Support

Established in 2012, MaHRC is quickly moving to create a global leadership position in the emergent interdisciplinary field of music and health, to enhance our understanding of the role of music and sound in individual and societal health and wellbeing. With already over 50 researchers from Music, Medicine, and other faculties, the UHN (University Health Network), other clinical research teams, and partners for other universities, MaHRC is seeking support for its innovative mission, projects, and collaborative programs. A transformative naming opportunity for someone, a target for directed support from several individuals already.

Opera Program Naming Opportunity & Program Leadership Support

Celebrating its 50th anniversary season this past year, since its inception soon after WW II UofT Opera has been Canada’s pre-eminent university-based opera training program. Over the years UofT Opera has been the training ground for many of Canada’s greatest singing, coaching, conducting, directing, and theatre design talent. Today our graduates continue to win major competitions and to move on to professional companies and young artist programs. UofT Opera: a legacy naming opportunity for some great philanthropist and a popular direction for support from our loyal annual donors.

Chairs / Professorships in Support of Faculty Leaders

Many Areas in performance, teaching, and research at UofT Music have outstanding potential and they need to attract and retain high-profile faculty in an increasingly global talent pool. Support for Faculty Leaders helps secure and sustain excellence. 

Student Support—Graduate Fellowships, Undergraduate Scholarships, Program Support

As part of the University of Toronto the Faculty of Music is committed to providing access and opportunity to the best and brightest students regardless of means. Graduate Fellowships are absolutely essential to attract the best national and international prospects. Though our students do quite well in securing limited available external research funding, we need major philanthropic support to provide graduate fellowships across all program areas at the master and doctoral levels. UofT Music has benefited from significant scholarship support (both endowed and annual) from many donors over several decades. But to remain competitive in a global context we need to be able to offer more substantial Undergraduate Scholarships and Graduate Fellowships, and to provide deeper Program Support to enhance student experience, notably to assist individuals and ensembles with travel to competitions, conferences, master classes, international exchanges, and summer programs.

Innovation Fund—Dean’s Discretionary Fund

In addition to the Alumni Annual Fund, the Dean’s Discretionary Fund provides resources to take advantage of opportunities as they arise: to provide ‘seed money’ or start-up funding for a new course, program, or research project, to purchase instruments and technical equipment, to ‘match’ other partnership sources. We hope to grow this fund substantially through direct funding and endowment.

Give & Take Stories

Truth be told, giving sometimes goes unrecognized...

At other times, it is acknowledged...beautifully.

At UofT Music we want to work with you to support our students and programs and we make every effort to acknowledge and thank our donors. 

At this year's season launch/welcome,  Dean Don McLean shared this story about the emotional and relational importance of philanthropy from higher-education fundraising legend Don Gray:

Never Forget the Rose to the Widow and the Drum Serenade...

A middle class family who enjoyed the music of their local University gave a modest donation to its Music Faculty in memory of a late father and husband. The Dean immediately thanked them for their kind generosity and suggested that they might like to meet the beneficiary, the young student that their scholarship would support. They had the opportunity to meet her and to hear her graduating recital.

At the end of four years the family was also invited to attend convocation. As the young student stepped up to receive her diploma, she also received, as was custom at that school, a single rose. She turned, crossed the stage, and handed her rose to the widow who had made her graduation possible through that funded scholarship... a beautiful and graceful moment. 

Years later,  that same family made another donation to the marching band drum corps at another school. On a particular game day, the drum corps met the donor in front of the football stadium gate, surrounded her and, without any words exchanged, performed a drum serenade salute for her and then peeled off into the stadium.

When you are thinking about the power of philanthropy, particularly philanthropy in Music and performing arts:

Never Forget the Rose to the Widow and the Drum Serenade.

At UofT Music we share our Moments & Outcomes through our annual Concerts & Events. 

Support Programs

Imagine visiting a parent in a seniors' home. Today he may be withdrawn, confused, and agitated, he may have lost the ability to communicate, perhaps even recognize you. It is hard.

But, suddenly, when he listens to music...his toes start to tap, he calms down, and he begins to sing along...

MaHRC (The Music and Health Research Collaboratory) brings together experts in music, medicine, and clinical practice. MaHRC's researchers study diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke, chronic pain...and how music can and does make a difference.

Through UofT Music, UofT, UHN (The University Health Network), and other external partners, we are quickly moving to a global leadership position in this emergent field. You can support MaHRC and Music Research.

At UofT Music we are a national leader in Music Research in composition, performance, theory, musicology, ethnomusicology and education, and we offer a wide range of respected and renowned performance programs in many domains: classical, jazz, early music, contemporary, opera. Our humanities-based research on music & society, as well as our groundbreaking work in music & health, and our national leadership through the Institute for Canadian Music (ICM) need your support to sustain our award-winning efforts.

Support UofT Music's Areas of Study...share in our Moments & Outcomes

Please support our programs.

Annual Gifts

Every annual gift has an impact on UofT Music students...the Faculty of Music trains performers, scholars, composers, and music educators for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The Annual Fund and the Dean's Discretionary Fund together help support many student and program activities, and are often used to leverage additional outside resources that help us realize projects that would otherwise be impossible.

If you are sport minded, depending on the season, we are the proud home of the Raptors, the Blue Jays, and the - uh - Maple Leafs. With a little  planning, you could find yourself experiencing professional sports at its best. 

 So plan your stay - music, culture, sports, attractions, - something for everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

TORONTO MUSIC

 

Home to Canada's largest number of musicians and music venues, Toronto is a creative and business hub for music in Canada.

 While in Toronto, plan on attending a performance of the Canadian Opera Company or the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

 LaScenaMusicale is always a good bet for information on current and upcoming performances in and around Toronto. 

 Check out Toronto Life and Toronto (the official website of Tourism Toronto)  for current  shows, concerts and events.

 Blog TO’s Best Jazz Bars and Where.ca’s Best Jazz Clubs also have up to date information on  jazz venues and shows, and if you are planning to be here in the early summer, consider the Toronto Jazz Festival… considered one of the world’s best.

 Music around every corner…
