Building upon the positive response from audiences and artists alike, YYZ Live, a musical celebration featuring live performances by local musicians, has taken to the stage again in Toronto Pearson International Airport’s Terminals 1 and 3. The encore music series starts this week and will run until the end of the year.
“We are pleased that this successful partnership will continue and generate more paid performance opportunities for Toronto musicians,” said Mayor John Tory. “YYZ Live is a program that helps reinforce Toronto as a music city to visitors and residents alike.”
Produced by the City in partnership with Toronto Pearson International Airport, YYZ Live will present up to six free, live music performances a week for the enjoyment of passengers. Shows are scheduled for 6 to 6:40 p.m. and again from 7 to 7:40 p.m. on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights at the YYZ Live stages in the Terminal 3 Departure Gate Area (past security) and the Terminal 1 International Arrivals meet and greet area (pre-security). The program was initially launched last summer and featured 150 performances in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday.
