We are proud to be assuming oversight over the event, which has been delivered by the City of Toronto for over twenty years.
We have been a partner of Sunday Serenades for the past two years and we have seen the incredible impact the event has had on the North York community. As a newly established charity whose vision is for more deeply engaged arts and culture programming in North York, we wanted to ensure that Sunday Serenades remained a staple event this summer.
Join us for this free outdoor concert series at Mel Lastman Square featuring some of Ontario’s best live swing, big band, and jazz acts. Dance the night away to the sound of the roaring 30s, 40s, and 50s.
Sunday Serenades will take place during four consecutive Sundays in July starting July 8th.
We thank the City of Toronto for all their support.
