Performances will air every Friday at 6pm starting Oct. 1 through to Dec. 3, 2021
Toronto, ON, September 14, 2021 – The new TD Music Great Hall Series features streamed musical performances from Toronto and the GTA’s top artists recorded in the newly restored, architecturally stunning Great Hall at Union Station. The weekly, 25-minute performances will air every Friday at 6pm on Canada’s Music Incubator (CMI) and Union Station’s social platforms, and TDMusic.com starting October 1 through to December 3, 2021.
Ten artist performances have been curated by CMI. The series will be filmed over-night at Union Station from 11pm-5am in order to avoid any commuter disruption. Every performance can be streamed on the TD Music Great Hall Series’ YouTube channel, TDMusic.com, and Union Station and CMI’s Facebook, Instagram and YouTube platforms: @torontounion and @cmincubator.
“TD understands the vital role artists and musicians play in shaping communities and sharing perspectives we don’t often hear. Supporting the TD Music Great Hall Series, will help by providing platforms to amplify diverse voices in arts and culture, and support artists that have been adversely affected by the pandemic as we eagerly wait for the safe return of live music,” says Michael Armstrong, Vice President, Brand & Corporate Sponsorships, TD Bank Group.
“Union is proud of the work we do with CMI to support local and international artists and provide accessible arts programming to the public. CMI is a valued and longstanding partner of Union, and have worked with us to curate Union Beats, Union Summer and now the TD Music Great Hall Series,” says Syma Shah, Executive Director of Programming & Special Events, Union Station. “This is the first program of its kind at Union. We love the rich history and architecture of the Great Hall, which creates the perfect background for artists to unlock their creativity and perform. We look forward to bringing this program to life at Union and sharing it with the community.”
“With the gradual return of live music, we want the TD Music Great Hall series to whet the appetites of music lovers by reminding them about the amazing and diverse talent we have in the region using a gorgeous, non-traditional performance space. We hope it encourages everyone to return to live music venues around Toronto and the GTA as they safely re-open,” says Jesse Mitchell, CMI’s Director, Live Events.
