Toronto Symphony Orchestra presents

Sarah Jeffrey Plays Mozart

In March, TSO Principal Oboe Sarah Jeffrey gave a dazzling performance of Mozart’s captivating Oboe Concerto. It was so enjoyable that, for a limited time, the TSO is releasing a recording of the entire concert as a TSO Live Streams replay!

TSO Concertmaster Jonathan Crow leads the Orchestra in this exquisite all-Mozart program, which also features one of the composer’s best-known early works—Symphony No. 29. And, as an extra special treat, you’ll be taken behind the scenes for a reed-making demonstration with Sarah Jeffrey.

This concert is approximately 60 minutes in length and will feature 25 musicians from the Orchestra.
