City Hall is collaborating with African Music Week to showcase live music by two award-winning African Musicians: Blandine and Kobena Aquaa Harrison.
Music development officer Mike Tanner say one of the points in city council’s music strategy that was recently passed “is to create more opportunities for live performers across the city.” He says holding a concert at a venue as “central and high profile as city hall couldn’t help but be a good thing.”
Tanner adds that “music is an outstanding expression of Toronto’s diverse culture[…] the sound of Toronto’s music is really it’s diversity.” He explains that “we’re the most multicultural city in the world and we can certainly see that through music.”
Live from City Hall is an opportunity for Zoomers to come together with their community and embrace Toronto’s diversity through the shared love of music. The concert runs at City Hall from 5 to 7 pm Thursday June 2nd… and is completely free!
