“Man plans; God laughs,” as the saying goes. As soon as it became clear that we would not be able to gather in the Toronto Music Garden – or anywhere else! – this summer, our artists responded with generosity and ingenuity. These short online concerts are a way of bringing the joy, spirit and community of Summer Music in the Garden to your homes until we can meet again in our magnificent home, the Toronto Music Garden. Enjoy! – Tamara Bernstein, Artistic Director of Summer Music in the Garden at Home.
