In today's Urban Planner: stop by the opening reception for Ingrid Kay's "Painted Poetry" exhibition, speak up at a town hall about the future of Jarvis Street, and listen in on the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra at Koerner Hall.
ART: The Artscape Wychwood Barns Community Gallery is celebrating the official opening of a new show today. Ingrid Kay will be presenting a solo exhibition of abstract landscape paintings titled “Painted Poetry.” The show is on view until April 8. Wychwood Barns Community Gallery (601 Christie Street), 6 p.m., FREE.
TOWN HALL: Speak your mind about the future of Jarvis Street at a public town hall tonight.

The Toronto Cyclists Union is encouraging you to join them at the meeting with your bike helmet in tow. Jarvis Collegiate Institute (495 Jarvis Street), 6:30 p.m., FREE.
MUSIC: They’re usually making beautiful music behind the scenes, but the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra will be centre stage tonight when it presents its debut concert. The concert is in honour of the ballet’s 60th anniversary season and will include pieces from the company’s history alongside a presentation of archival images. The performance will be led by music director and conductor David Briskin. Koerner Hall (273 Bloor Street West), 8 p.m., $30–$55.
