Toronto Symphony offers free seats to minority musicians

The orchestra has responded with positive action to last week’s racist incident, when a concertgoer was evicted for abusive conduct.

The TSO is giving out free tickets to 100 young musicians from ‘underrepresented communities’ during the course of the coming season.

The abuse victim, Aisha Ahmad, has called it ‘ a great teachable moment for our city’.

  • I think this is excellent.After all, the incident was not TSO’s fault, and it sounded as if their staff acted appropriately to conclude it. This is a fine gesture of good will.
