From its origin in 1898 as a small group of local women musicians creating performance opportunities for themselves, the WMCT has evolved into a major Toronto arts presenter of emerging and established Canadian and international artists, welcoming everyone to performances of great chamber music.
We have survived –
The WMCT has been presenting concerts since well before the flu pandemic of 1918-1919. We have endured two World Wars, depressions and recessions, and in 2020-22 another devastating virus.
Not Just Concerts
Essential to the WMCT’s mission are the presentation of its Career Development Award every three years, and the Commission each season of a new chamber work by a Canadian composer for performance during that season’s Music in the Afternoon concert series.
