On Saturday October 8, 2016 the Toronto Symphony is launching their very first TSO Pop-Up Shop at Roy Thomson Hall.
Items you should think of picking up just in time for holiday shopping season are hot off the press!
First of, TSO has collaborated with Toronto street artist ANSER to bring a Beethoven Collection limited-edition black shirt. It’ll be on sale before the concert and during the Beethoven & Tchaikovsky performance intermission on Saturday October 8, 2016. If you don’t have your tickets yet – get on it soon! https://www.tso.ca/concert/beethoven-tchaikovsky
If you are not coming to Beethoven & Tchaikovsky – t-shirts will be available to purchase online starting on Saturday October 8, 2016.
While you are at it, pick up the Toronto Symphony Listening Guide, which has been bringing the TSO international attention. Voila, https://www.creativereview.co.uk/how-the-toronto-symphony-orchestra-uses-graphic-design-to-guide-its-audiences-though-its-music/.
The TSO Listening Guide has been shortlisted for a data visualization award from “Information is Beautiful”, which is based in London, England. The awards were founded by David McCandless – http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/about/
The list is now out for public voting. Here’s the link: http://www.informationisbeautifulawards.com/showcase/1322-toronto-symphony-orchestra-listening-guide
Bravo to the Toronto Symphony for blending classical music into street culture. Let’s keep classical music alive for generations to come!
