      Free Concert Series

      The Free Concert Series is back!

      The Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre, presented by TD Bank Group, brings artists from around the world to share their talent and passion in one of Toronto's most breathtaking and intimate spaces. Located within the Isadore and Rosalie Sharp City Room at the Four Seasons Centre, this iconic, glass-enclosed space connects the building to its surroundings and community. 

      Throughout the 22/23 season, monthly digital concerts will be released on this page as The Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre: City Sessions. As the newest iteration of our City Sessions digital concerts, these concerts build on last season's popular public programming series!
