Music Mondays has served as a launching pad for emerging talent since its inception in 1992. Our concerts take place in the warm acoustics of Holy Trinity Church, just steps away from the Eaton Centre. Our goal is to provide the highest possible musical experience to a pay-what-you-can downtown Toronto audience. Our audience includes office workers, tourists, retired folks, young children, the homeless, students and other musicians. We try to provide the best possible venue for emerging Canadian artists. The acoustics of Holy Trinity are very special – warm and inviting. The church boasts two fine instruments – a newly acquired Steinway “B” Concert Grand and a superb Casavant Frères tracker-action baroque organ. Musicians are invited to perform new Canadian works, involve the audience in the performance and push the acoustic envelope! To read more
