Jazz Near The Jack.

 “Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.”

 

 

 

—Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty

 

Summer breeze and lush green trees, that’s what summer is all about.

Summer in Toronto is a long awaited and highly admired time for residents of the city. A time where we put away those parkas and make more trips to parks. Where we take off our boots and put on our ball caps. Where we put down the shovel and pick up the sunscreen. Simply put, summer in Toronto, is the BEST time in Toronto.  The city comes alive during these months, as its robust diversity and long standing traditions and festivals fill the months with inclusiveness, laughter entertainment, and great weather.

As the case with most Canadians, with great weather comes the irresistible itch to be outside. Whether its frolicking through fields, bouncing balls, or sulking in the scenery – the snow is only gone for a short period of time, and most people try and take the utmost advantage. 

Every Torontonian also knows that summer season means construction season, as an abundance of innovative, unique, and new communities spring to life in various flourishing locations across the GTA. This summer is especially special for Aspen Ridge, as Rosedale’s crown jewel The Jack, is all set to begin construction in August. This condo will be located in the heart of midtown, one of Toronto’s most affluent and highly sought neighbourhoods.

But beyond its convenient locale and opulent surroundings, Rosedale is home to a plethora of summer activities that captivate the community and provide a lifestyle reserved for those who appreciate having the word at their doorstep. The Jack is a midtown playground, in a location so central that you’re seconds from all the action and world-class amenities. 

Throughout rock and roll’s golden years, 1331 Yonge Street was at the top of the charts for Toronto’s greatest cultural icons. Here, beneath the warm and comforting glow of its iconic ‘Dial 1050 CHUM’ neon sign, disc jockeys and radio producers worked behind the scenes keeping the city singing and grooving along with the latest rock and roll beats.

Within these very walls, countless entertainment icons came to play: Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Elton John and the Rolling Stones to name a few. If the public caught so much as a whisper that one of their heartthrobs was going to be here, the sidewalks and streets outside would be mobbed with fans hoping to catch even a glimpse of their star.

The same musical traditions remain prevalent today, as every summer the city gets to bask in its musical roots and enjoy the musical stylings of various artists from around the world.

Every summer, The Summer Music in the Park series comes to midtown, a series of concerts that take place in the Village of Yorkville Park where families and friends can groove along to various performers in various musical genres. 

So have a seat and tap your feet to the smooth summer sounds ranging from Latin to street funk and explore a diverse range of musical concert series sure to have you rocking and rolling! This concert series is free and runs every weekend from June 3 to September 9, so you never have to worry about not making a show! Best part of all, it’s only minutes from your potential future home, The Jack.

So kick up your feet and enjoy the beat, as below you will find the schedule for all performances throughout the summer!
