The outrageously good weather that helped make Small World in the Park such a delight continues to bless us in Toronto – we’ll take it! It certainly made the just completed 16th Annual Festival feel like a summer affair. Thanks to all who attended, participated and helped make it happen!
We were very pleased to be engaging with our communities, presenting debut performances and generating good media attention. From the first Polyphonic Ground Presents event, with bands from Toronto, New York and Montreal, to the Canadian debut of a young Korean traditional group, late night grooves with Pierre Kwenders and a great crowd at Saturday’s beautiful Sufi concert at St. Andrew’s Church, it was wonderful.
We’re proud to have been the first to bring musical entertainment to Trillium Park. Continuing our relationship with Ontario Place and offering a free daylong program of music, Small World in the Park was a lively event, with crowds throughout the day, many of whom stayed for the fire pit MO, “you make up a title, we make up a song,” with A Little Rambunctious. Special thanks to the Toronto Real Estate Board for helping make the day possible, as well as to all of our funders, volunteers and supporters. Especially you!
The great music continues next week at the Small World Centre, when Autorickshaw does a two-night run to celebrate 15 years and the release of their 5th album ‘Meter’. This should be special, watch the trailer here. More to come next week.
