It’s still pretty quiet but there are some things still going on:
August 16th to 20th, the National Ballet has free performances at Harbourfront incorporating a number of partners and an eclectic mix of dance styles. Details.
August 28th at pm in the Music Garden at Harbourfront Lawrence Wiliford and PhoeNX Ensemble are performing Alec Roth’s Songs in Time of War. This one is free and outdoors so “weather permitting”.
August 30th to September 5th is the Ashkenaz Festival. The big deal here for me is a recently discovered Yiddish opera; Henekh Kon’s Bas Sheve which plays at the Glenn Gould Studio at 8pm on August 31st. Full details of the festival here.
