TSO presents

Step into the immersive world of a live listening party, led by Hrishikesh Hirway, the visionary behind the groundbreaking Song Exploder podcast and Netflix series. Known for his incisive conversations with pop stars and music icons — from Billie Eilish and Bono to Yo-Yo Ma and Metallica — Hirway reveals the soul of songcraft. This unmissable evening features Hirway and Toronto Symphony Orchestra Music Director Gustavo Gimeno in conversation stageside, along with the full orchestra. Together, they dissect the mesmerizing layers of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, accompanied by live replays of musical sections and microscopic insight into the orchestra in action. The grand finale? A complete, soul-stirring rendition of the famously unnerving piece.

Join the riot and embark on a journey to illuminate one of orchestral music’s most celebrated works.
