Musical Toronto: 38 Questions For Nicholas McGegan


“British-born conductor Nicholas McGegan is as a frequent visitor in Toronto. He last led the Toronto Symphony Orchestra through Handel’s Messiah in 2012, prompting John Terauds to call it the best he had seen in 12 consecutive years.

As a specialist in Baroque and Classical period repertoire, he has a point-of-view that is refreshingly undogmatic and completely open to discovery.

You can hear Nicholas McGegan lead the TSO plus Yulia Van Doren (soprano), Abigail Levis (mezzo-soprano), Isaiah Bell (tenor), Daniel Okulitch (bass-baritone) and the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir on December 18 through 23.”
