Box Concerts

Delivering free live curbside concerts in Toronto


We’re bringing live music to Toronto communities this summer with Box Concerts!

With support from Distillery District neighbours Soulpepper Theatre, we’re offering free concerts to communities, care homes, and frontline workers, and selling tickets to curbside neighbourhood performances with a compact travelling stage. For only $150, we’ll come to you! 

Audiences are encouraged to book a performance to enjoy from the vantage of their own porches or to donate a performance to worthy care facilities, retirement homes, and neighbourhood associations.

Find out where we’ll be next!

“It is more important than ever to find ways to safely bring humans together and to use theatre and music to help our communities and front line workers heal and recover.” 

Soulpepper Artistic Director Weyni Mengesha

“Live music outdoors and at safe distances will be a welcome relief and pleasure for folks suffering from screen overload and missing human connection. With so many more people spending time at home, we wanted to find a new way to bring dynamic performances to you, in this case… on a flatbed!” 

Tapestry Opera Artistic Director Michael Mori
