WMCT Artistic Mandate

The Women’s Musical Club of Toronto presents an annual series of world-class chamber music concerts that include both well-established international and Canadian performers, as well as exceptional musicians on the threshold of their careers.  An integral part of the WMCT’s programming is the presentation of its Career Development Award winner every three years, as well as the annual commissioning of a new work by a Canadian composer.

Music in the Afternoon Concert Series

Music in the Afternoon, an annual series of five chamber music concerts, features a variety of established and emerging Canadian and international instrumentalists and vocalists.

Historically the WMCT’s concert series brings international talent to Toronto. Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Andres Segovia, and Leontyne Price made Canadian debuts. James Ehnes, Russell Braun, Glenn Gould, and Maureen Forrester are among the illustrious Canadians who have been presented.

Master Classes

A master class sponsored by the WMCT is led by a series artist each year at the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto.

Commissions

Each season the WMCT commissions a new chamber work from a Canadian composer for performance during that season’s Music in the Afternoon concerts series.
