About Youth Jam
It all started in 2018 with a conversation between youth musicians Celia and Annie Siriopoulos of the group CAArdia and Ariyena Sorani who is lead vocalist of the band Blue Opaline. The discussion was about the lack of platforms available for youth musicians to play at. It came to their attention through attending a seminar at Canadian Music Week where John Tory spoke, that the parks in Toronto were available to have a show in. From there, Youth Jam Toronto was born. The festival is about bringing the many talented youth musicians in the city and surrounding areas, together and put on an all day festival. The prestigious Christie Pits Park became the venue of choice at it is legendary and a location the founders love to hang out at.
