I had the honour of attending Event Showcase Night at The Royal Conservatory’s Telus Centre. It was an evening specifically for Event Planners to showcase the glorious hall and various reception rooms. The Telus Centre has an exclusive list of suppliers that commanded our presence that evening. My Uber black car pulled up to 273 Bloor Street West. I walked down a long aisle to be greeted by polite and professional wait staff carrying warm up drinks of some pomegranate coloured, sweet and sour with a splash of sparkling bubbles. I continued down a long hallway (regrettably in my stilettos, albeit it was a walk that entwined both romance and modern art that made the walk oh so spectacular. One wall was composed of a brick wall and a glass enclosure on the other, humbly overlooking the atrium, home to the b’espresso bar, where you will see students mingling amongst classical repertoires.
A group of exclusive, yet diverse vendors were lined up on the circumference of the main lobby. Behind each vendor, their company name was discreetly but creatively
displayed in white font, and appeared to be floating, on the glass window behind them. How tasteful. Only the finest samplings were provided. It was not your usual chicken on a stick or spring roll offering. There was melt in your mouth, fork tender beef ribs carved in the creamiest polenta ever. There was fois gras stuffed cornish hen. Clearly no expense was spared. But wait, there were also lobster rolls stuffed in those bite size half moon, mini white bread concoctions.
A beautiful jazz trio, dressed in tuxedos played in the corner of the glass enclosed hall. Could the evening be any more perfect?
You can rent one of the three floors but why would you? Go big or go home and rent the entire venue. It’s a must for your special occasion. Except, all in, it starts at about $50, 000 as you must rent each individual floor and bring in caterers and décor and tables and chairs. Is it worth it? Absolutely.
If you’re looking for a gorgeous venue and your budget has lots of room for incidentals, consider the breathtaking Telus Centre. And put me on your guest list.
Wednesday March 21st, Toronto turned up their amps and grabbed their instruments to be a part of Canadian Music Week. The five-day event, running from Wednesday to Sunday is brought together all kinds of Torontonians. The weeklong festival of events hit genres for every music lover making the event a success. Over the few days there were many ways to be a part of the action. Here is a list of some of the main features of Canadian music week, and what makes it so popular.
Canadian Music Week designs their conferences to put you face-to-face with forward-thinkers who shape the entertainment industries – from sound recording, new media, and broadcast to live touring, film, and technology.
CMW Film Festival (http://www.cmw.net/festival/film-festival/)
Canadian Music Week Film Fest presents an eclectic mix of movie premieres, special screenings, retro rarities, and limited engagements. The festival spotlights some of the industry’s hottest new directors, composers, artists, actors and music supervisors.
Music Festival (http://canadianmusicfest.com/)
The Music Festival is stretched far and wide throughout the city in venues big and small. The festival will be featuring local talent, as well as artists from all over the world. The line up of artists is meant to promote the variety of music that is constantly available in Toronto.
Canadian Music Week also featured a comedy festival and this year the festival featured Steve-O from the notoriously known “Jackass” trilogy. So whether it was grabbing a cold beer and watching a concert, or being a part of the CMW Conference, there was plenty of music to go around to every Canadian interested. I know I enjoyed seeing Canada’s own The Sheepdogs perform live.
