In studying Sheila's music I was inspired by the freedom this format afforded her, whether she was scat singing or improvising lyrics in the moment. Over the years I've had the pleasure of playing this way as part of the Toronto Jazz Festival with Order of Canada Member Dave Young  as well as some of my favourite bassists from around the country: Brandi Disterheft, Alex Bellegarde, Ross MacIntyre, Jordan O'Cooner, to name a few. Pay-What-You-Can, $10-$20 suggested Reservations: call 416-792-7725 or text 416-706-4237 Stick around for Lisa Particelli's Girls Night Out jazz open mic! Wednesdays 8pm-Midnight at 120 Diner

RWM presents NFB films at Doors Open Toronto at CAMH, 1001 Queen St. W., Toronto
Three Films Toronto Boomtown This short documentary studies the contrast between the sedate Toronto of the turn of the century and the thriving, expanding metropolis of 1951. Aerial views give evidence of the conversion of the old Toronto into the new--the city with towering skyscrapers, teeming traffic arteries, vast industrial developments and far-reaching residential areas housing over a million people. Toronto Jazz This short documentary profiles the mid-century Toronto jazz scene through the eyes of acclaimed filmmaker Don Owen (Nobody Waved Good-bye). The film features prominent acts from what was then regarded as the third-largest jazz centre in North America, including the Lenny Breau trio, the Don Thompson Quintet and the Alf Jones Quartet. Jazz lovers will relish this inside look at the creativity, hard work, improvisation, and stylization of these talented musicians. Farewell Oakstreet This documentary presents a before-and-after picture of people in a large-scale public housing project in Toronto. Due to a housing shortage, they were forced to live in squalid, dingy flats and ramshackle dwellings on a crowded street in Regent Park North; now they have access to new, modern housing developments designed to offer them privacy, light and space.

"We’re taking over Toronto City Hall’s Rotunda for a whole weekend as part of this year’s Doors Open Festival (May 27-28). It will be the construction site of Mouse City Chronicles, five consecutive model city-building workshops. Each one will be inspired by a 30 year period in Toronto history, from 1867 to today. By the end of Doors Open 2017, the Rotunda will house a five-part model of a make-believe metropolis, Mouse City, that mirrors the growth of our real-life city over the past 15 decades. "The recent spotlight on Canada’s 150th anniversary prompted us to wonder: How would Toronto’s transformation over the past 15 decades be reflected in its twin urban hub for storybook mice, Mouse City?"

It’s All Forgotten Now (world premiere) and Love Locked Out, two works by Canada’s Chris Paul Harman, who shares Chin’s affinity for transforming familiar source materials with musical language that is fresh, vivid, and thrillingly modern, are also on the program. Both pieces, one of which will be a world premiere, are inspired by the 1930s popular songs of Al Bowlly. Guillaume Bourgogne conducts a virtuoso ensemble. Stay after the concert for a post-show chat with Artistic Director Lawrence Cherney and artists from the concert.

RWM presents NFB films at Doors Open Toronto at CAMH, 1001 Queen St. W., Toronto
Three Films Toronto Boomtown This short documentary studies the contrast between the sedate Toronto of the turn of the century and the thriving, expanding metropolis of 1951. Aerial views give evidence of the conversion of the old Toronto into the new--the city with towering skyscrapers, teeming traffic arteries, vast industrial developments and far-reaching residential areas housing over a million people. Toronto Jazz This short documentary profiles the mid-century Toronto jazz scene through the eyes of acclaimed filmmaker Don Owen (Nobody Waved Good-bye). The film features prominent acts from what was then regarded as the third-largest jazz centre in North America, including the Lenny Breau trio, the Don Thompson Quintet and the Alf Jones Quartet. Jazz lovers will relish this inside look at the creativity, hard work, improvisation, and stylization of these talented musicians. Farewell Oakstreet This documentary presents a before-and-after picture of people in a large-scale public housing project in Toronto. Due to a housing shortage, they were forced to live in squalid, dingy flats and ramshackle dwellings on a crowded street in Regent Park North; now they have access to new, modern housing developments designed to offer them privacy, light and space.

Small Print Toronto at Doors Open Toronto at Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W., Toronto
"We’re taking over Toronto City Hall’s Rotunda for a whole weekend as part of this year’s Doors Open Festival (May 27-28). It will be the construction site of Mouse City Chronicles, five consecutive model city-building workshops. Each one will be inspired by a 30 year period in Toronto history, from 1867 to today. By the end of Doors Open 2017, the Rotunda will house a five-part model of a make-believe metropolis, Mouse City, that mirrors the growth of our real-life city over the past 15 decades. "The recent spotlight on Canada’s 150th anniversary prompted us to wonder: How would Toronto’s transformation over the past 15 decades be reflected in its twin urban hub for storybook mice, Mouse City?"

Spinosaurus: Lost Giant Of The Cretaceous With Nazir Ibrahim at Centre In The Square, 101 Queen St. N., Kitchener
Meet Spinosaurus, the largest predatory dinosaur yet discovered—larger than T.rex—and hear the incredible story of how this prehistoric giant was almost lost to science, before being brought back to light. Discovered more than half a century ago in Morocco by the great German paleontologist Ernst Stromer, Spinosaurus’ fossil remains were lost during World War II. With the help of recent fossil discoveries in the desert, and Stromer’s own data and drawings, contemporary scientists including paleontologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer Nizar Ibrahim have reconstructed a full skeletal model of Spinosaurus. With video recreating the lost world of the Cretaceous-era Sahara, Ibrahim will tell the story of Spinosaurus’ discovery, loss, and rediscovery.Spinosaurus

In studying Sheila's music I was inspired by the freedom this format afforded her, whether she was scat singing or improvising lyrics in the moment. Over the years I've had the pleasure of playing this way as part of the Toronto Jazz Festival with Order of Canada Member Dave Young  as well as some of my favourite bassists from around the country: Brandi Disterheft, Alex Bellegarde, Ross MacIntyre, Jordan O'Cooner, to name a few.

Four Voices: Joan Baez, Mary Chapin Carpenter & Indigo Girls Amy at Massey Hall, 178 Victoria St., Toronto
Legendary artists and longtime friends Joan Baez, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and the Indigo Girls' Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, will share the stage at Massey Hall in a special group performance as Four Voices, the only Canadian stop on the group’s limited North American tour. The friendship between these four acclaimed artists spans over twenty-five years, beginning when Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Baez invited Ray and Saliers to perform at a 1991 benefit at the Berkeley Community Theatre. Upon accepting the invitation, Ray and Saliers suggested enlisting five-time Grammy Award winner Mary Chapin Carpenter. After a successful performance, the four of them reconnected a year or so later for a performance at an Earth Day Celebration in Boston. Most recently, while together at Baez’s 75th birthday concert at the Beacon Theatre (where they performed "The Water is Wide"), they discussed the possibility of going on tour together and—one year later—the Four Voices Tour was confirmed. For this special concert, Baez, Chapin Carpenter, Ray and Saliers will bring songs from each of their acclaimed catalogues to the Massey Hall stage, on the Hall’s 123rd birthday, to perform together as Four Voices. Tickets: $59.50–$99.50
