On July 22nd – If you’ve ever dreamed of performing on the St. Mary’s stage, now you have your chance!

This event is a great opportunity to support local musicians and gain some more performance experience. From 1PM until 3PM on July 22nd, bring yourself and your instruments to perform one or two selections. We will have microphones accessible to be used. Meet local artists, hear great music, and feel the magic that exists under the spire.
On July 23rd – The Happenstancers have been recognized as being ‘among Toronto’s best young chmbaer musicians’, and will be bringing their concert titled ‘Dreams-Bend’ to St. Mary’s. Consisting of Micah Behr (piano and viola), Brad Cherwin (clarinet) and Madlen Breckbull (viola), these musicians have been performing together since their first collaboration at the Stoughton Chamber Music Festival in 2020.
Dreams-Bend transports the listener into a world of night and dreams, combining romantic chamber music with subtle contemporary works. The concert’s namesake comes from the featured piece ‘Dreams-Bend’ by Du Yun. Written for speaker and ensemble, Yun’s piece is featured alongside other pieces crafted for music and poetry intertwined. This darkly curated program combines romantic composers such as Brahams and Schumann with more contemporary sounds of Kurtag and Ades. This concert will feature newly created poetic works by Behr and Sol, which will premier at this concert.
