Harbourfront Centre’s highly anticipated return to live music is here, and this year, the Music Garden welcomes a new curator, Gregory Oh.
The Summer Music in the Garden concerts take place most Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. at the Toronto Music Garden along the waterfront. It’s an exciting time for live music and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome you back!
The 2022 season features multiple commissions by Harbourfront Centre.
Raging for Change: Raging Asian Womxn Taiko Drummers
Raging Asian Womxn Taiko Drummers (RAW) is a Toronto-based performing arts ensemble of East and Southeast Asian womxn. Formed in 1998, they carry on the diasporic Taiko tradition that grew out of Asian-American and Asian-Canadian mobilization in the 60s and 70s. One of the few all-Asian, all-womxn Taiko drumming groups in the world, RAW exists as a critical response and challenge to both systemic and internalized oppressions. RAW plays large Taiko drums as creative resistance for social change, carving space for self-expression, education and community building.
