The Royal Occasion is The Royal Conservatory of Music’s signature fundraising gala event celebrating excellence in shaping and supporting our music landscape.

Postponement of The Royal Occasion

Dear Friends of The Royal Conservatory of Music,

After what has been a challenging year for everyone, and with so much continued uncertainty, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Royal Occasion until 2022.

The Royal Occasion is a unique event, and for many it is a highlight of the annual cultural calendar. However, it became clear that we would be unable to host the event with the same sense of celebration as we have in the past, and this would be a disservice to our donors, sponsors, honourees, and guest artists.

As we head into the summer, we look forward to better days ahead, and a bigger, better Royal Occasion celebration next year. The Royal Conservatory and event co-chairs Rayla and George Myhal are eager to welcome you back to Koerner Hall to recognize and celebrate those who have made a significant contribution to arts and culture. The gala will be held in May 2022 and will be an event not to be missed!

If you have any questions, please contact Manager, Fundraising and Stewardship Events.
