More about Concert Series:

Due to the pandemic, we have had to completely reinvent our organization and events. We opted to hold a virtual festival in September 2020, where our audiences could experience films, interviews, and concert performances from their home. 

The concert series was a powerful force in the Thunder Bay music community. For all of the musicians involved, it was one of the only opportunities for them to perform during the pandemic. Every music venue has shut down, and some risk never coming back. This is why we knew we needed to make another concert series. It is a lifeline for music in our region. 

The series combines filmmaking, audio production, projection art, set decorating, and musical performances, into community driven concert videos that will document a key moment in our region's history.
