The Etobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra is proud to announce that it is this year's winner of the Diamond/Platinum Etobicoke Guardian Readers' Choice Award. We would like to thank all readers and classical music lovers for voting for them in the Live Theatre category.
Although there is an obvious pause in our popular staged concerts at present due to the pandemic, the EPO wants to assure everyone that we are keeping the spirit alive with small classical ensemble presentations following health and safety guidelines and are planning a virtual concert in the near future.
Watch for announcements and updates on our website, Facebook page and newsletter.
Watch the video from our conductor, Matthew Jones.
Further to our March 16 announcement we regret to advise that our May 8 concert is also cancelled which brings our 2019-20 season to a premature close. This is obviously disappointing for you, our audience, and also for our musicians who have been rehearsing so diligently.
Ticket holders may request a refund or alternatively, as we are a Not-For-Profit Organisation and have incurred significant non-refundable costs, you could donate the value of unused ticket payments and we would be very pleased to issue you a tax receipt for donations of $20 or more.
Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416-239-5665 and we will be pleased to deal with your inquiry.
The EPO thanks you for your past support, your current understanding and we look forward to playing for you again at the earliest opportunity. Our plans for the 2020-21 season will be posted on our website as soon as Public Health guidelines for our type of organisation are defined. We encourage you to check in periodically.
EPO Concert in Lockdown
The EPO may be in lockdown, but its members, conductor and soloists continue to live, play and think music. We invite you, our audience, to enjoy our uniquely curated, virtual concert–the program planned for May 8th–together with interviews, podcasts and member showcase videos. Please follow this link to access the first EPO Concert in Lockdown.
You may have to stay home, but you can still experience the concert–and with a glass of wine in the interval!
Prepare for the concert by tuning into the EPO's very own "Music Listening Project Podcasts" on the Brahms 2nd piano concerto and Liszt's Les Preludes, either on the EPO website, Soundcloud, or on iTunes.
ESS Support Services, as a partner in Toronto Ride, will provide round trip transportation for Etobicoke seniors at a special low group rate to any of our concerts. If you are interested in using this door to door service please call 416-243-0127 ext 555.
