Box Concerts

Live curbside concerts in Toronto

In Summer 2020 we toured our live Box Concerts to communities around Toronto. Be the first to find out about our plans for Summer 2021 by signing up to our newsletter.

With support from Distillery District neighbours Soulpepper Theatre, we offered free concerts to communities, care homes, and frontline workers, and sold tickets to curbside neighbourhood performances with a compact travelling stage.

Audiences were 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.

“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
