“When you leave here you will play in all sorts of halls, but very few will be as good as Koerner Hall.”

Zubin Mehta
Guest Conductor

“Koerner Hall has a full concert season featuring some of the greatest performers from around the world. This year, we received comps to concerts such as the Emerson String Quartet with Menahem Pressler, mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade, and violinists Christian Tetzlaff and James Ehnes, to name just a few.”

Keith Hamm
Alumnus, Principal Viola, Canadian Opera Company Orchestra

“I like the fact that The Glenn Gould School is all about performance and that students get multiple performing opportunities each year. Through The Glenn Gould School, I have had the chance to perform in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre at the Canadian Opera Company and in Walter Hall as part of the Mooredale Concert Series. I get to use the wonderful facilities in The Conservatory for my solo recitals and chamber performances. Our school orchestra performs numerous orchestral concerts a year in Koerner Hall. I also love studying in the new building.

Emily Belvedere
Alumnus, Harpist

“The most valuable part of studying at The Glenn Gould School for me was the way our education was integrated with developing a career outside of school, so that when we graduate, if we have taken advantage of the opportunities given to us, we already have the groundwork laid to begin performing professionally.”

Wallis Giunta
Alumna, Mezzo-soprano, Canadian Opera Company Studio Ensemble

“Anyone who wants to log the hours practicing can always find a room.”

Rory McLeod
Alumnus, Violist, former Glenn Gould School Student Council President

“What I enjoy about teaching is the interaction and energy between the student and myself. That energy then transforms into a ‘make music’ and ‘let’s sing’ phenomenon that allows the student to enter a place outside of themselves, which is really important in projecting the vocal instrument.”

Jean MacPhail
Faculty, Mezzo-soprano

[The Royal Conservatory] is a leading centre of excellence offering an extraordinary program of professional training and education.
