Black Arm Band Concert Cancelled

Royal Conservatory of Music

The Royal Conservatory of Music regrets to announce that the Black Arm Band concert in Koerner Hall on Friday, March 23, 2018, and their entire tour, been cancelled due to the company’s ceasing operation.

The Royal Conservatory ticket buyers have multiple options, including exchanging their tickets for another concert during the 2017-18 concert season, exchanging them for a gift certificate, receiving a charitable tax receipt by donating ticket value to The Conservatory, or obtaining a refund.

While some concerts in the Music Mix concert series are close to being sold out, tickets still remain for Holly Cole, who will be performing all her fan favourites and several wonderful new songs from her soon to be released 12th studio recording; the annual Maple Blues Awards; DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Playlist & Skratch Bastid with a new stereotype-busting, genre-defying show; the dashing, dapper, and debonair Max Raabe and Palast Orchester, and three SongBird North evenings.
