Youth Showcase Concert

Introducing Canada’s First-Ever Virtual Music Festival for Youth

Founded in 2019, Senaida Ng established the Youth Showcase Concert Series with the goal of
creating a platform to provide more performance opportunities for emerging local youth
musicians after being denied the opportunity to play in local bars due to age-limit requirements.

This year’s Kickoff Concert will take place on August 1st, featuring international headliners for the very first time, Juniper from Massachusetts and The Groovin Souls all the way from Costa Brava, Spain.

Reaching 300 people in its inaugural year, the Youth Showcase Concert Series is not letting the
COVID-19 pandemic set it back. Once again, it will feature numerous singer-songwriters,
rappers and bands performing a variety of musical genres–just this year, on a virtual platform.
Each week’s concert will comprise of a compilation of 15-minute recordings of each
artist’s performance set. Embracing the virtual nature of this year’s showcase, performers will
also participate in other live events, including Instagram Live takeovers.

On the last day of this year’s concert series, a donation will be made on behalf of the Youth Showcase Concert to the NIA Centre for the Arts, a Toronto not-for-profit organization that provides resources and spaces for artists from the African diaspora. Donations will be collected through our website where $1 = 1 vote for the favourite performance of the Youth Showcase Concert lineup.

The Youth Showcase Concert Series will take place every Saturday in August
through Youth Showcase Concert’s website, and their social media platforms.
