When it comes to enjoying live music, a small, intimate venue not only makes you feel surrounded by the sounds of the performance, but also provides incredible acoustics. The Festival of Small Halls is a unique series of concerts that brings both local musicians and big names in Canadian music to small towns across Ontario. Intimate venues chosen for this multi-week festival include century-old churches, community centres, and town halls.
Last year, Sandy from Life In Pleasantville travelled to a show in Pakenham to uncover the beauty of small towns, and found herself immersed in the community spirit as she swayed to the music at St. Andrew’s United Church. Read on to learn how she took in this show from the very last church pew.
