We are a group of volunteers and and a non resident friend or two who live at 21 Shaftesbury, a residental complex in the heart of Toronto’s Rosedale – Summerhill neighborhood. From its opening in 2001, the complex has attracted people who love music and the arts and our facilities were designed to take advantage of these common interests. Through the years members have sponsored many performing arts ensembles who enjoy our space and love to perform here. Now we are offering our own series to a wider public for the fifth season.  We hope you will join us for several concerts in our coming season.

Our updated website will keep you up to date via our News page – and you can subscribe there to receive updates via email. You can find the next upcoming concert information just below and order tickets  here. You might also enjoy seeing previous events when you scroll down even more or finding out more about this year’s performing artists here.  And you can see exactly where we are on the bottom of any page.

Thanks for visiting and we hope to see you soon.
