The Lighthouse Project - Love Letters to Live Music

Arts Administration - Cultural Management

The freshly established Lighthouse Toronto is proud to announce the debut of Love Letters to Live Music. Love Letters To Live Music will now be a virtual event broadcast live on our Instagram page @thelighthouseto from 8pm - 10pm on Friday, April 16th. Our projections will remain the same, but instead of being mapped on the wall of the Cameron House, our graphic designer will film the installation in his studio. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced Toronto to turn down the volume, dim the lights, and bring down the curtain. In the absence of live concerts and performances this project aims to give hope to musicians, venues, and fans that live music in Toronto will one day take back the stage.
