About Jonathan Crow
Victoria Conservatory of Music Alumnus Jonathan Crow has been Concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra since 2011. He earned his Bachelor of Music in Honours Performance from McGill University in 1998, at which time he joined the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) as Associate Principal Second Violin. Between 2002 and 2006, Jonathan was the Concertmaster of the OSM; during this time, he was the youngest concertmaster of any major North American orchestra.
Having studied with VCM founding Head of Strings, Sydney Humphreys, Jonathan returned to the VCM in May 2014 as a featured soloist for the VCM’s 50th Anniversary Jubilee Alumni Concert and has also performed on the VCM’s Alix Goolden Performance Hall stage in 2013 and 2019 as a member of the renowned Canadian New Orford String Quartet.
His return in April 2020 is part of another unique project the VCM has been able to mount for the 2019-20 season, that includes a series of masterclasses presented with Jonathan Crow and Philip Chiu at the VCM for Young Artist Collegium students, and at UVic’s School of Music, and also an in-person Q&A and solo performance for students at the Arbutus Global Middle School.
