An aria is a lengthy vocal piece in an opera, accompanied by instrumentation. Throw in an ‘N’ and you have Naria, a four-piece, proudly Canadian (the ‘N’ stands for “north”) female vocal group. Join them on the beautiful Casa Loma terrace as they perform their original opera, pop, techno, classical, and world-infused compositions.

TV Trivia Night: Back to School Part II

  • Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West)
  • 7 p.m.

TV Trivia Night is celebrating its one-year anniversary, and what better way than to host a trivia event featuring two shows that only lasted one year each? Back to School Part II requires you to get studious about two short-lived high school series—My So-Called Life and Freaks and Geeks. Come with a team of six, or show up alone and make some new friends as you answer a barrage of trivia questions in the form of video montages, audio clues and more.

Come by, pick up the album, and help send these guys on their way.
