Acclaimed Canadian acting legend Gordon Pinsent joins the TCC on the stage of Roy Thomson Hall to narrate the John Rutter classic Brother Heinrich’s Christmas.
As the CBC’s George Strombolopolous wrote “If you had to pick one person to symbolize acting in this country, Gordon Pinsent might be it.”
Gordon has received two ACTRA awards for his television work; four GENIE awards for achievements in Canadian film; five GEMINI awards, a DORA award for the stage, as well as honorary doctorates at Queen’s University; the University of Prince Edward Island; Memorial University of Newfoundland; Lakehead University; the University of Windsor and an honorary degree from Humber College. He was made Officer of the Order of Canada in 1979, and promoted to Companion within the Order in 1998. In 2012, Gordon received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
We would like to sincerely thank The W. Garfield Weston Foundation for their support of the Toronto Children’s Chorus who recently donated $15,000 to support the Choral Music Library and the Conductor Internship Program. We cannot thank them enough for their generosity! With generous support such as this, we are able to continue enriching the musical lives of so many young Canadians.
