Palm Court Ensembles

Toronto Music Entertainment

TorMusic Entertainment is proud to present The Palm Court Ensembles, the tradition and style of Salon Music which has charmed and entertained the world for so many years. The Palm Court tradition evokes an image of British High Society between the Wars, afternoon tea at the Ritz amid potted palms, or dancing to Geraldo at the Savoy.

Palm Court Music began as a curious blend of British and European flavours – take Edward Elgar’s “Salut d’Amour” and Victorian Gilbert and Sullivan; combine them with Viennese Strauss, Hungarian Lehar, add more than a dash of Noel Coward and Victor Herbert, and you have the very essence of Palm Court music.

TorMusic presents five unique ensembles with integrated production services. Select a Palm Court Trio, String Quartet or Quintet. Other ensembles include the 10 piece Palm Strings, and the Grand Salon 18 piece orchestra. The Grand Salon, Canada's Palm Court Orchestra presently features six different Themed Programs (see The Grand Salon Orchestra below). This orchestra is led by Kerry Stratton, Canada's well known radio talk show personality (Toronto 96.3 FM), and one of Canada's most gifted and versatile conductors.

Sound/Staging/Lighting

In our experience, music production services are better realized when they are coordinated from one source. Our Sound/Staging/Lighting services have been designed to complement our musical ensembles and are offered at very competitive rates.
