This event has passed.
June 4, 2013

The Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre is a unique opportunity to experience diverse artistic programming in what has become one of Toronto’s most exciting cultural hubs. Six inspiring series offer concerts, dance performances and engaging presentations that feature both up-and-coming young artists and established international stars. All performances are FREE to the public, with admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Concertgoers are encouraged to arrive early as late seating is not available.

12:00pm to 1:00pm. American violinist and literary scholar Keir GoGwilt presents the Canadian premiere of Schubert’s Nacht und Träume in an original paraphrase informed by Samuel Beckett’s television play of the same name. GoGwilt’s compelling program of sonatas and songs without words also includes works from Prokofiev and Milhaud, as well as transcriptions of Berg’s Die Nachtigall and Traumgekrönt.
