Sunday night music has audiences dancing under the stars
Toronto Special Events - Sunday Serenades, a weekly concert series at
Mel Lastman Square, brings the smooth sounds of the city's best swing, big band
and jazz acts to Toronto's warm summer evenings. Swing dance enthusiasts will
have a chance to show off their moves under the stars at these free concerts.
Sunday Serenades run every Sunday between July 18 and August 29 from 7:30 to 9

The series kicks off with the Capital City Orchestra (July 18) with their
extensive repertoire of swingin' 30s and 40s music that will delight listeners
and dancers alike. Join Peter Appleyard and His Big Band (July 25) as the
master of swinging, sophisticated jazz heats up the night on his vibraphone.
Accompanying Appleyard is Juno Award-nominated Priscilla Wright adding her
sultry vocals to the evening.

The August line-up features Jennifer Valentyne (August 1), Citytv 's Breakfast
Television personality by day and also the best kept secret in Toronto by
night. Skylark (August 8) is famous for their sparkling harmonies, fabulous
songs and unique rich music. Experience the upbeat classics of the George Lake
Big Band (August 15) with their modern swing arrangements. The Toronto Megacity
Swing Band (August 22) features the most extensive repertoire of classics from
the swing era. Closing out the Sunday Serenades season for 2004 is Sonata Sings

Frank Sinatra.
