Audit the Institute
Thank you for your interest in the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute. We welcome auditors to all aspects of the institute except private lessons and coachings. Auditors may sit in on masterclasses, lectures, workshops, orchestra and choir rehearsals, dance classes, opera workshops, and chamber ensembles, and are encouraged to attend our free concert series. Please note that auditors do not actively participate in the classes they choose to attend.
All events from June 10-21 take place at the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto, unless indicated otherwise. At noon on June 22 we move to Grace Church on-the-Hill to prepare for the June 23 Grand Finale concert.
A detailed schedule for auditors can be downloaded using the link found at the bottom of this page.
Auditors may register for the entire Institute, or purchase daily or class passes, as follows:
An open pass allows the auditor to attend any events of his/her choice during the entire Institute, June 10–23. To obtain an open pass, please contact Caitlin Cross, Administrative Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org/ 416-964-9562 x241. You may also register in person as of June 10 at the TBSI Office at the Faculty of Music (Room 130). An Open Pass includes reserved tickets to all concerts, including the very popular Grand Finale.
As we do not limit the number of auditors, there is no need to register in advance for a daily pass. Simply come to the TBSI Office at the Faculty of Music (Room 130) on the day you wish you attend.
INDIVIDUAL CLASS PASS (GOOD FOR 1 MASTERCLASS, LECTURE or WORKSHOP)
There is no need to register in advance for individual classes, lectures, rehearsals, or workshops. Simply come to the TBSI Office at the Faculty of Music (Room 130) at least 15 minutes before the scheduled class/lecture to purchase a pass.
Whether you are auditing the entire Institute, or individual days or classes, it is essential to check in at the TBSI Office upon your arrival each day to check for any schedule changes, and to determine room assignments for each class. An up-to-date schedule is posted outside the TBSI Office, and staff is on hand to answer any questions. Office hours are 8:00 am to 10:00 pm daily (from 9:00 am on Sunday), and the office is located on the main floor at the west end of the building, just off the main lobby. At noon on June 22 the TBSI participants, faculty, and staff move to Grace Church-on-the-Hill.
Prior to June 9, all inquiries should be made to the Tafelmusik Office at 416-964-9562 x241. From June 9 onwards, all inquiries should be made to the TBSI Office (phone number will be posted here on June 1).
There are five free public concerts during TBSI. See details here
All concerts are offered with FREE ADMISSION. The Grand Finale on June 23 is extremely popular, so patrons must obtain a ticket to ensure admission. Auditors who purchase an open pass to the entire Institute may pick up a ticket at the TBSI Office. Auditors who purchase daily passes, or passes to individual classes, must obtain a ticket from the Tafelmusik Box Office. Tickets are available as of 10:00am on Tuesday, June 19, either online, or in person (maximum 2 tickets per person). They may not be reserved in advance of June 19. Note that all tickets were distributed within an hour of becoming available last year.
If you have any questions about any of the above, or about the Institute in general, please contact us at the Tafelmusik Office: email@example.com
