Toronto Teen Composer Award

Continuum celebrates outstanding compositions by secondary school students from across the Toronto District School Board. Each year, one student is selected from applications to mentor with composer Chris Thornborrow over several months. The work created is then presented as part of Continuum's concert season; in 2017-2018, in a special pre-concert presentation on January 21 as part of Time Travels Light.

In 2017, the inaugural Toronto Teen Composer Award went to Cindy Chen, a student at Leaside High School. Her new composition The Combine was performed March 25, 2017 at The Music Gallery as part of our PIVOT concert. See the video below.
