“aN ACT OR PROCESS OF MERGING”
Joyous, daring and thought-provoking musical experiences within a warm atmosphere of intimacy and discovery.
Confluence – “an act or process of merging” – is a company of diverse creative artists dedicated to intimate, thought-provoking, entertaining and moving presentations with a focus on:
Cabarets curated by a wide cross-section of Toronto’s leading musicians
A focus on the work of Indigenous artists and artists of colour
Anniversary programs celebrating important figures in music
Salons and lectures on a wide variety of musical topics
Commissions of new works by Canadian creative artists
Special programs of rarely-performed sacred and spiritual music
The eventual launch of a new podcast series, entitled “Confluence: The Podcast” on and about music to be housed on the Confluence website.
In addition, Confluence will be a platform for young artists, students and pre-professionals, to interact with seasoned pros.
Artistic Producer Larry Beckwith has been ably assisted in planning this new mandate by a whole host of outstanding and diverse figures from Toronto’s amazing music scene.
Confluence has grown out of Beckwith’s work with Toronto Masque Theatre from 2003-2018. TMT was an interdisciplinary performing arts company that presented over 65 critically-acclaimed programs of music theatre, commissioned nine premieres from leading Canadian creative artists and was known far and wide for its innovative programming.
