TD Presents Free Ottawa Concert Headlined by Serena Ryder. Sky-rocketing to the highest echelons of Canadian musical fame with her November 2012, multi-platinum selling release, Harmony, Serena Ryder released the trailblazing, infectious lead single, “Stompa” and the equally anthemic follow-up track, “What I Wouldn’t Do,” which raced to the top of the radio airwaves top-10 lists across all formats, have gone even bigger and better. The sensational Serena Ryder with special guests The Strumbellas and The Lionyls will rock the arena at TD Place on Friday July 3rd in concert presented by TD Bank Group. The free concert is a gift to Ottawa and Gatineau music lovers to celebrate summer and kick-off a home-opener weekend at TD Place for the Ottawa REDBLACKS (CFL) and Ottawa Fury FC (NASL).
TD PRESENTS FREE OTTAWA CONCERT HEADLINED BY SERENA RYDER
Meeting Serena Ryder along with this year’s Governor General Performing Arts Award Winners Sarah McLachlan, Atom Egoyan and Jean-Marc Valée was one of the highlights for our summer this year! The Governor General’s performing arts award (GGPAA) is THE event of the season, an evening of pomp and circumstance, which perfectly closed with a brilliant performance by Serena Ryder. Adored by fans, peers and critics alike due to her immense natural song writing talent and beautifully electric live performances, Ryder has garnered many other accolades including three prestigious JUNO Awards: 2008 New Artist of The Year, 2009 Adult Alternative Album of The Year (Is It O.K.) and 2010 Video of The Year (Little Bit of Red) over the years.
