Live From City Hall reveals Nathan Phillips Square summer schedule

July 6th, 2016


Since January 2016, the City of Toronto has been celebrating the original sounds of Toronto’s diverse neighbourhoods with the Live From City Hall concert series in the building’s rotunda.

The free concert series, in partnership with TD and Music Canada, has showcased an eclectic mix of nearly 20 local artists and bands including folk duo The Young Novelists, Ghana-born multi-instrumentalist Kobèna Aquaa-Harrison, country trio Runaway Angel, and many more Toronto-based acts.

Beginning tomorrow at 12:30 PM, Live From City Hall will move outside to Nathan Phillips Square with a performance from reggae band The Fugitive Minds, hosted by music reporter and media personality Rudy Blair.

For the duration of the summer, a local Toronto act will grace the outdoor stage every Thursday (except July 21) for a lunch hour performance, including a UNITY Charity showcase on July 14 and banjo-driven roots artist Hannah Shira Naiman on July 28. The rest of the schedule will be announced in the coming days.
