Why do we share secrets?

Sometimes only a song can express a hidden truth or an intimate feeling. Join Soundstreams and two notable Toronto songwriters for a program about exposing “the personal” and “the intimate” through music – and to explore the question “Why do we share secrets?”

Stay tuned…

  • For an announcement of the evening’s songwriters!
  • And a way to share your own anonymous secrets as inspiration for an upcoming Soundstreams performance!

The Event

Get ready for Encounters! As always, we’ll feature free performance and discussion at The Gladstone Hotel.

  • Grab a drink, discover and engage with Soundstreams’ music and themes in a relaxed atmosphere.
  • Feeling hungry? Expect fresh delights coming out of the Gladstone Hotel’s kitchen – a pioneer of the local food movement in Toronto since 2006.
  • Feeling curious? Bring questions for the open Q&A! Encounters is your chance to ask our performers and special guests those questions you’ve always wondered about or take part in a conversation about something new.
