A celebration of Miles Davis, a tribute to Aretha Franklin, Dave Brubeck’s centennial, an evening with Bobby McFerrin and 250 years of Beethoven are among the highlights of Koerner Hall’s upcoming season.

On Tuesday, the Royal Conservatory of Music announced 110 concerts featuring artists from 43 countries that will make up its 12th season.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has put countless concerts and other large gatherings on hold, the Royal Conservatory is pressing cautiously ahead with its 2020-21 season in the hopes that it will be able to welcome attendees to its concerts again.

“Music has been uniting us through these unprecedented times and, should the government directives on social distancing be lifted, we eagerly anticipate when we can gather once again to enjoy music collectively,” said Dr. Peter Simon, the Royal Conservatory’s president and chief executive.

Organizers have reduced Koerner Hall’s capacity and restructured its ticketing system in order to ensure safe physical distancing at their concerts.

“Nothing compares to the power of live music and the collective experience of sharing it together. Music is enormously important to well-being and strengthening our spirits,” added Mervon Mehta, the Royal Conservatory’s executive director of performing arts. “Therefore, we are cautiously and optimistically moving forward with plans for the 2020-21 concert season in a way that is safe and responsible.”
