Living Room Mini-Concert

Guelph, ON

A little late to the party, but that's ok! This will be my first online concert live! I've done a lot of recorded performances during the pandemic that were hosted on the sites of whomever was hiring me, but this one will be live. *This mini-concert is open to current subscribers to my patron space as a way of saying thank you! It will also hopefully put my mind at ease- I've been anxious about doing live stream concerts for too many reasons to list here. But this will be a nice, intimate introduction!

To become a Patron, click on the "Subscribe" tab on my website's menu. To register for the event, email: & you will be sent the Zoom link.
