Serena Ryder: The Art of Falling Apart Tour 2022: SOLD OUT
After such a wonderful fall series, it will be a perfect end to it by presenting Serena Ryder to a sold-out house. Serena is a platinum-selling, Juno-winning, iconic artist; her video for “Better Now” can be found here.
This series has truly been a celebration of diverse artists! Below are photos from concerts by Jeremy Dutcher (Garry Woodcock photo), William Prince, AHI, and Grace Petrie (Kerry Jarvis photos).
