Confluence – “an act or process of merging” – is a company of diverse creative artists dedicated to intimate, thought-provoking, and moving presentations.

Our concerts include:

  • Cabarets curated by a wide cross-section of Toronto’s leading musicians
  • A focus on the work of Indigenous artists and artists of colour
  • Anniversary programs celebrating important figures in music
  • Salons and lectures on a wide variety of musical topics
  • Commissions of new works by Canadian creative artists
  • Special programs of rarely-performed sacred and spiritual music

In addition, Confluence is a platform for young artists, students and pre-professionals, to interact with seasoned pros.

Artistic Producer Larry Beckwith has been ably assisted in planning this new mandate by a whole host of outstanding and diverse figures from Toronto’s amazing music scene, including Artistic Associates Andrew Downing, Kathleen Kajioka, Marion Newman, Patricia O’Callaghan and Suba Sankaran

Confluence has grown out of Beckwith’s work with Toronto Masque Theatre from 2003–2018. TMT was an interdisciplinary performing arts company that presented over 65 critically-acclaimed programs of music theatre, commissioned nine premieres from leading Canadian creative artists and was known far and wide for its innovative programming.
