Sunday Concert Series at Scarborough Civic Centre
The Sunday Concert Series (also known as Sunday Serenades) at Scarborough Civic Centre is a staple in the community that is loved by its faithful attendees.
In order to be more efficient with the use of public space and resources, the City of Toronto will be implementing some changes to the program. Starting in January 2018, concerts will take place twice a month from September to the end of June. During the summer months of July and August, the Sunday Concert Series will go on hiatus.
Each summer, Albert Campbell Square hosts many public events for the community to enjoy, and freeing up space inside the civic centre will allow some of those events to grow to include an indoor component.
The 2018 schedule appears below.
Please note: There is no reserved seating for any concerts. Concerts can be subject to change or cancellation due to extreme weather conditions.
