Beethoven & The Four Temperaments

The focus on Beethoven and Nielsen continues with a tempestuous Beethoven concerto and Nielsen’s whimsical symphonic gallery portraying four kinds of human personalities: choleric (ambitious and leader-like), phlegmatic (relaxed and peaceful), melancholic (analytical and quiet), and sanguine (pleasure-seeking and sociable).

Jill Barber

An expert ambassador for bygone eras, Jill Barber manages to channel a vintage spirit while remaining thoroughly contemporary—the happy side effect of a repertoire that ranges from country to Motown to jazz. Stocked with melody-laden, hook-filled songs from her latest album, Fool’s Gold, the ever-charming Vancouver singer-songwriter—last seen at Massey Hall winning over the crowd as the opener for Michael Kaeshammer—headlines here for the very first time. A special guest appearance by Toronto troubadour Matthew Barber—skilled lyricist, unapologetic romantic and brother to Jill—turns the evening into a family affair.

Murder at the ROM Scavenger Hunt

A curator has been murdered and a trail of clues left behind, connected to secrets in the collections. As you solve clues, you’ll begin to piece together a tale of greed, lust, pride and revenge. There are multiple suspects, one victim and you, the sleuths, must crack a cryptic code left in the curator’s appointment book to solve the mystery.

On an Urban Capers Scavenger Hunt, you don’t collect items, but rather answers to tricky and humourous questions. This event is not associated with the ROM. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.urbancapers.com/murder-at-the-royal-ontario-museum/.

Bloor-Yorkville Shines Bright for Holiday Magic

On Saturday, November 15, the Bloor-Yorkville Business Improvement Area (BYBIA) will kick off the holiday season with Holiday Magic, the spectacular annual community free concert event in support of the Canadian Foundation For Aids Research (CANFAR).

Between 5pm – 6:30pm, families, friends and music lovers are invited to the Village of Yorkville Park for the Official “Flick the Switch” Lighting Ceremony and a special performance by Molly Johnson. Back by popular demand after a stand-out Holiday Magic performance in 2011, the Juno Award winning jazz vocalist will ring in the holidays with the Bloor-Yorkville community performing songs from her new album “Because of Billie”, an album of Billie Holiday songs that plays homage to the iconic jazz singer. The evening’s musical entertainment will start with a performance by folk rock artist Andrew Austin.

The BYBIA will transform the Village of Yorkville Park and Bloor Street into a dazzling display of lights shining bright throughout the neighbourhood. In addition to the Christmas tree located in the Village of Yorkville Park, a 20-foot tree glowing with an LED light display will sit outside the ROM at Avenue Road and Bloor Street. Patrons of the neighbourhood can look forward to shopping, dining and enjoying the attractions this year surrounded by festive lighting along the tree-lined streets.
