The Royal Occasion is The Royal Conservatory of Music’s annual signature fundraising gala celebrating excellence in shaping and supporting our music landscape. At this event, the Honorary Fellowship, the highest designation of The Conservatory, is awarded to a select few in recognition of their profound impact on society through their contributions to the arts. 

On May 12, 2023, comedic actor Eugene Levy, philanthropists Louise and James Temerty, and singer/actor Jackie Richardson were named as Honorary Fellows of The Royal Conservatory.
