Dream Serenade returns to Roy Thomson Hall on Saturday, November 2! Line up and ticket info will be shared in September.
It’s hard to believe that we are about to celebrate the 5th annual Dream Serenade Benefit Concert. This year’s show will take place at Roy Thomson Hall (as our regular home, Massey Hall, is undergoing its two-year revitalization) on Saturday, November 17 2018.
City and Colour, Barenaked Ladies, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Owen Pallett, Hayden, Weaves and Iskwé will be all be performing this year. And as usual, there will be some exciting special guests (past surprise guests have included Gord Downie, Jim Cuddy, Kevin Drew and others). The silent auction will return and take place on the night of the show for attendees in the Hall.
Tickets for Dream Serenade will be on sale this Friday, September 14 at 10am EST and available at the Roy Thomson Hall box office, by phone at 416-872-4255 or web at roythomsonhall.com.
Proceeds from the Dream Serenade support Toronto’s community of children with physical and developmental disabilities and their caregivers, and will continue to fund the year-round respite Family Relief Fund as well as an extended Summer Bursary Program. This past summer, Dream Serenade was able to assist over 50 families in the Greater Toronto Area in accessing Summer camps and programming through the initial Summer Bursary offering.

“After touring my debut, Everything I Long For, across Canada for the better part of two years from 1994-96, I celebrated its imminent International release by developing a strong dislike for the sound of my music. A major sticking point in my negotiations with Outpost Recordings (my US label at the time) was to have the ability to release singles and EPs on my own or through smaller labels. They agreed, and Moving Careful was born from late night obsessions on the third floor of a rented Victorian house in Toronto. Although much of my debut was recorded on a 4-track cassette, I was eager to get back to my Yamaha MT100 II, and very inspired by what Eric’s Trip and Lou Barlow were doing at the time.”
Moving Careful was released on Hardwood/Sonic Unyon in late 1996. Side Two of this 20th Anniversary edition also includes home recordings from the time period, things that Hayden had tucked away and found homes on Canadian Indies like Lunamoth, Landspeed and Squirtgun.
