Junction the Dry: Two Nights of Canadian Music and Craft Beer

Hi Everyone,

I am a piano teacher and pianist living in the Junction Triangle. This coming Thursday and Friday, I will be performing in a concert in our sister neighbourhood of the Junction. See below for more information. Please note that admission is free for everyone 18 and under.


Junction the Dry

The Canadian Music Centre's New Music in New Places presents 'Junction the Dry' -2 nights of contemporary music featuring Toronto-based musicians Stephanie Chua (piano) and Véronique Mathieu (violin) in collaboration with CMC Associate Composer Emilie LeBel to present music and sounds inspired by the Junction neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end.

“Toronto the Good” was once commonly used to refer to the city when it was held up as the epitome of Victorian civility and morality. This title is epitomized by the prohibition of alcohol in the Junction neighbourhood which lasted from 1904 until 1998. It is only now that the Junction is seeing a wide-spread revival of night life. “Junction the Dry” will be a fitting celebration of the music and burgeoning personality of the Toronto neighbourhood.

Featuring works by Derek Johnson, Emilie LeBel, James Rolfe, Caitlin Smith & Healey Willan

Dates: Thursday, March 21 & Friday, March 22
Time: Composer Chat @ 7:30pm, Concert @ 8:15pm
Admission: $25 (admission includes one 12-oz beer), $20 (concert admission), FREE (18 and under)
