Junction the Dry: A night of Canadian Music and Canadian Craft Beer
The Canadian Music Centre's New Music in New Places presents 'Junction the Dry' -2 nights of contemporary music featuring Toronto-based musicians Stephanie Chua (piano) and Véronique Mathieu (violin) in collaboration with CMC Associate Composer Emilie LeBel to present music and sounds inspired by the Junction neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end.
“Toronto the Good” was once commonly used to refer to the city when it was held up as the epitome of Victorian civility and morality. This title is epitomized by the prohibition of alcohol in the Junction neighbourhood which lasted from 1904 until 1998. It is only now that the Junction is seeing a wide-spread revival of night life. “Junction the Dry” will be a fitting celebration of the music and burgeoning personality of the Toronto neighbourhood.
