The Leaside Community Festival is a new ongoing initiative of True North Foundation to provide a positive interaction between creative artists and musicians within their community.

The 2010 edition of the festival featured 3 concerts held at the Leaside Library in November. The first concert was a collaboration with the choir of the Anglican Church of the Transfiguration and the Boreal Orchestra, directed by choral director John Sigerson in a program featuring the first and last masses of Mozart, including movements from the famous Requiem Mass K. 626. The second event was a concert of chamber music, featuring pianist Satoshi Matsumura in recital as well as with members of the Boreal Orchestra in a performance of Brahms Piano Quintet in F Minor. The last concert of the festival combined the Boreal Orchestra and Seniors Choir in a program of Bach and John Dowland, followed by Canadian classics with the choir being directed by Rudy Koren.

True North Foundation gratefully acknowledges support from the Toronto Public Library, the Anglican Church of the Transfiguration, St. John's Music and their generous donation of tympani, and support of the Boreal Choir funded in part by the Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Program.
