The Kingston Road Village Concert Series is the brainchild of Tim Dawson, a bassist with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and member of Kingston Road United Church. Four to six concerts a year are presented at Kingston Road United Church, a central location in the Kingston Road Village and an amazing acoustic space. All concerts feature exciting professional musicians performing music that ranges from traditional classical to the avant garde. Everyone is welcome, especially kids. The proceeds raised from these concerts assist Kingston Road United Church to do critical repairs on its building, which serves as a community hub in the Beaches, Toronto.
Unless specified, concerts are $25, $10 for students, and free for children 12 and under.
