The warmer months are upon us, and for some people, that means only one thing: the beginning of festival season. Get a sneak peek at the classical musicians who will be on the scene later in the season with the Toronto Summer Music Festival Preview. This free lunchtime performance features Montreal’s Sonoro Quartet playing pieces by Haydn and Dvořák on violin, viola, and cello.
It’s never too early to start celebrating World Pride, which is why the Toronto Public Library is getting things started with a special presentation of Singing Out, the city’s largest LGBTQ choir.

A Platinum Production is back with the second instalment of The Producers series, which showcases the masterminds behind the burlesque and variety groups we know and love. Since it’s the Pop Edition, the tasty performances by Alexander, Gregory, and Stanley (The Mansfield Brothers Vaudeville Troupe); Pastel Supernova (Love Letters Cabaret); and Johnny B Goode, St Stella, and Belle Jumelles (A Platinum Production) will each have a slight hint of bubblegum.
