“Collier Street Concerts” Series
In addition to monthly concerts offered by Collier Street’s young artist series “Masters in Music”, Collier Street also offers a broader concert series. Be it their traditional annual “Christmas Carol Sing-a-Long” with the Metropolitan Silver Brass and the Collier Street Senior Choir and Choral Scholars in December, or a Ceilidh, or a famous men’s chorus, Collier Street Music presents a diversified, high-quality program for free-will offering as part of its mission to engage with and provide for the community.
“Masters in Music” Recital Series
Collier Street United Church’s Masters in Music recital series takes place on the first Sunday of every month at 3:00 pm in the beautiful sanctuary of Collier Street United Church. Musical styles range from opera and early music to jazz as well as various instrumental forms. The recital series seeks to create a connection between emerging young artists and audience members. Masters in Music offers high-level performances by advanced degree and highly active young artists. These artists are invited to treat the space as a laboratory of sorts, through which they test new ideas of their own, alongside the best of those in their field, all while talking the audience through their decisions and musical interpretations. A free-will offering supports the performing artists as well as Collier Street United Church’s larger community concert programming calendar.
