Do it in ... June at Yonge-Dundas Square!


This June, Yonge-Dundas Square (YDS) invites everyone to... DO IT IN PUBLIC! Or, at the very least, watch, listen, dance, and shop in public! With two free original concert series, a summer of big-screen romances, indie arts markets and spectacular guest events such as Luminato and North by Northeast, YDS is bursting with fun all summer long.

SERENADES IN THE SQUARE, Wednesdays @ Noon, Free Admission
Do it on your lunch hour in public! YDS hosts Serenades in the Square, a weekly series of free midday concerts featuring some of Canada's hottest new performers. Concerts start at 12 Noon. Lunchtime is about to get a whole lot tastier!

Wednesday, June 18 Flat Fifth
Pop meets jazz in this melodic five-piece from South Shore, Nova Scotia. With piano, guitar, fiddle, double bass, harmonica, percussion and vocals, Flat Fifth creates an infectious, fresh sound that shows the influence of artists such as Steely Dan, Ben Folds, The Beatles, Nat King Cole, Monte Alexander, Duke Ellington and Joe Jackson.

Wednesday, June 25 Ciara Adams
With her incredible vocal prowess and undeniable charisma, Ciara Adams is a talent that, once experienced, is never forgotten. A classically trained opera singer with a background in cabaret and a love of jazz, Adams blends cabaret, pop, electronica and jazzy grooves to create a style all her own.

Citytv and OMNI Television present
