By Nicolas Quiroga

Tapestry Opera has announced the third year of its “Box Concerts” series, which will run from July through September 2022.

This summer, the company will offer more than 60 free opera performances in nursing homes and another 30 in suburban neighborhoods around the Toronto area.

The lineup of performers for each performance includes baritone Korin Thomas-Smith, sopranos Natalya Gennadi, Meher Pavri, Midori Marsh, and Charlotte Siegel.

“‘Box Concerts’ have brought magic to Toronto communities these last couple of years, and so we’re delighted to be back on the road for the third year running. For 2022, we’re working with a roster of extremely talented Canadian singers who are passionate about opera’s power to delight and surprise audiences. Last year it was a thrill to watch audiences of all ages smiling and applauding together. We can’t wait to share more uplifting music with communities around the city – it’s going to be a special summer,” said Michael Hidetoshi Mori, the artistic and general director of Tapestry Opera.

The “Box Concert” series was started in 2020 and has been presented at over 125 residencies to thousands of Torontonians.
