"As a demonstration of the vitality and diversity of Toronto’s creative music scene, the Somewhere There Festival will include performances by over 60 performers and composers doing important, boundary-pushing work in the city of Toronto, along with a speakers' series featuring a number of prominent thinkers, educators, and music presenters." I'm gonna have more to say about this festival elsewhere, but I will point out that Somewhere There's first festival twelve months ago was one of my highlights of the year.
