The Unvarnished Truth:

The Sounds of (Old) Toronto

This exhibit explores the soundscapes of Toronto. From playing an instrument as a form of home entertainment, having a radio or other device that can play music in your home, the Royal Conservatory teaching hip hop and local music stores offering guitar lessons, to outdoor music festivals and instruments ranging from traditional piano to steelpan and sitars, this exhibit conveys the richness of Toronto’s symphony of sound.
