Edwards Summer Music Series with VC2
July 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The Edwards Summer Music Series includes eight FREE outdoor concerts showcasing contemporary Canadian talent, within the beauty of the Toronto Botanical Garden. Hosted by award-winning broadcaster and environmentalist Anwar Knight.
The concerts take place Thursday nights at 7 p.m. from July 13 through August 31 within the courtyard adjacent to the historic barn in Edwards Gardens. Concerts are held rain or shine (they move indoors in the case of extreme weather).
Admission to the concerts is FREE. General seating is available on a first-come basis or guests are encouraged to bring their own chair.
VC2 Cello Duo is an innovative cello duo ensemble that captivates audiences through their performances of classical masterworks, unknown gems and boundary-pushing music. Comprised of cellists Amahl Arulanandam and Bryan Holt, CBC Music says VC2 is “a tight unit, with excellent intonation and expression.” They present artistically challenging, yet accessible programs in venues ranging from intimate cabarets to Roy Thomson Hall.
Generously Supported by the Edwards Charitable Foundation.
