Joy Guidry + Chivengi


The line between heartache and intimacy is thin. Artists Joy Guidry and Chivengi navigate us through a night that teeters along the tightrope of your heartstrings.

Celebrating two incredible artists who have been on the Music Gallery’s radar for years, we’re very much looking forward to this night.

We welcome versatile bassoonist, improviser, composer and experimentalist Joy Guidry for their first Toronto performance! Having just hopped off a tour with Matana Roberts, this performance is one to watch for our fall season.

After catching Chivengi in an intimate Toronto show in 2019, we’re beyond excited to bring them back to the city on a larger stage. Singer/songwriter, producer, member of the Montreal ballroom scene and multidisciplinary artist, Chivengi has a way with expressing emotion.


918 Bathurst, is not currently wheelchair accessible due to stairs (two half-flights to enter the performance space, and one flight to access the washrooms). This event will have projected visuals, includes amplified sound and will not include additional scents

We will have ear plugs, sunglasses, and a ‘therapeutic room’ for those that need it. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to


We expect all attendees and community members to respect one another, and to respect the work that was created for you to explore. We will not tolerate harm or harmful behaviour of any kind. View our policy here.
