There’s nothing quite like a live show. But in light of local concerts and events being postponed, fans are left at home staring at their screens. Luckily, Toronto’s music industry is banding together to give them something worth tuning in to: URGNT, a virtual concert series to spotlight and support Toronto’s music community by emphasizing the importance of staying connected.
Started by Mark Marczyk of Canadian folk-punk band Lemon Bucket Orkestra, URGNT will livestream concerts from some of the city’s most historic venues. The first performance kicks off this evening at 7 pm ET via The Great Hall, where Canadian soprano, Measha Brueggergosman (pictured above), will perform gospel and blues. Livestream the show at the URGNT website.
