Ontario’s Stay at Home Regulations Cause Cancellations and Postponements to RCM’s 20-21 Season and 21C Festival

This week, the Ontario government extended and tightened restrictions for everyone in Ontario. Unfortunately, these new restrictions mean that concert halls remain closed to audiences and now we also are unable to have artists or production staff creating livestreams. This is a profoundly disappointing blow to all of us at The Royal Conservatory and to our artists who were so looking forward to performing.

The Conservatory had had to postpone and reschedule all concerts and livestreams for the next 28 days, as follows:


  • The Glenn Gould School New Music Ensemble: FLIPBOOK: Music and Images originally scheduled for January 15, 2021
    RESCHEDULED. Free public online concert on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 8pm.
