In light of the recent Covid 19 pandemic and out of respect for the health of our fellow citizens, the London Musicians Association (Local 279 of the Canadian Federation of Musicians) has decided to cancel this years Springbank Gardens Concert Series.Since August 2013, the London Musicians’ Association (LMA), with additional funding from Local Sponsors, the London Arts Council, the City of London Parks & Recreation, and the Music Performance Fund has presented the Springbank Gardens Concert Series at the Guy Lombardo Pavilion on Sunday afternoons.The Springbank Gardens location is an important part of the city’s music history and where Londoners danced to live music under the lights that used to be Wonderland Gardens. The LMA, has been pleased to provide free concerts and an accessible summer destination for all Londoners, especially our seniors’ community and their families.While it is unfortunate that the 2020 series is cancelled, The LMA looks forward to the 2021 season and the chance to, once again, provide Londoners with a unique and entertaining musical series.
