A very interesting church, indeed. Built in 1847 this diminutive Gothic Revival inspired church was built on a larger lot of land which over the years was sold off to the point where it’s now completely surrounded by modern Toronto buildings, including the Eaton’s Centre. Alas, there is more, the size of the Holy Trinity provides extremely good acoustics, a fact not lost on the church’s administration which lean many of its activities towards the arts, especially music.
Enter Music Mondays. A donation based concert series, now on their 27th season!
Bringing top tier musical talent literally makes the room resonate and each concert a pleasure. About a month ago a friend and I went to hear the visiting Ile de France Childrens’ Choir and a week later, Anastasia Rizikov, a Toronto native and piano prodigy perform to the delight of the audience. Unless you have a blood feud against a particular style of music, there is no reason to not try one of these excellent musical breaks.
Besides Music Mondays, Trinity Church is invested in events such as Nuit Blanche in early October and others, for more information, please check their website as projects are updated. They also sell used books if you need to pick on to read one to read! They are PWYC (Pay What You Can), although $5 is suggested. Besides, all the funds go towards good causes so it is a win/win!!
Drop by if you can.
