5 Concerts for our fifth Anniversary

 

 

CONCERTS

Westwood concerts is based on the idea that classical concerts can be enjoyed not only for the great music and performances but also for having a relaxed, fun and engaging atmosphere.

Michael Westwood, Clarinet, Toronto

The series was founded and is run by clarinetist Michael Westwood who has a passion for presenting great music in a way that audiences will leave saying “that was a lot of fun” just as often as “the music was amazing.”

Michael is a sought-after chamber musician and recitalist whose never-tiring drive to present excellent and eclectic concerts led to him founding Westwood Concerts in 2013.
