Celebrating their 25th anniversary season throughout 2018, the Gryphon continues to impress critics and audiences around the world with its highly refined, dynamic performances. Repertoire from the traditional to the contemporary, commissioning – and playing – more than 50 mostly Canadian works, teaching and touring: the Gryphon does it all. The Gryphon’s relationship with Music TORONTO – continuous since 1995 – included 10 years as our ensemble-in-residence (1998-2008). When we’re being irreverent, we call them our house band.
