Frequently Asked Questions
What is UnCovered?
Now in its 14th edition, UNCOVERED is The Musical Stage Company’s annual signature concert event. Normally held annually at Koerner Hall in Toronto, UnCovered: Notes From The Heart will be offered digitally in 2020.
This first-ever digital UNCOVERED concert will allow the company to introduce audiences around the world to this signature event. Professionally filmed and recorded, this made-for-digital evening will include an acclaimed mix of artists with a professional band led by the incomparable Reza Jacobs.
What will the concert entail?
Featuring the same high-quality arrangements, orchestrations, sound, and musicianship that audiences have come to expect from UNCOVERED live, UNCOVERED: NOTES FROM THE HEART will be an up close and personal audio & visual feast, taking you into the worlds and hearts of Canada’s finest artists.
UNCOVERED: NOTES FROM THE HEART will be recorded professionally with an audio engineer in one of Toronto’s acoustically stunning recording studios.
What is the length of the Concert?
Approximately 65 minutes, without an intermission. The evening will include 10 pre-recorded musical performances featuring an acclaimed mix of artists with a professional band led by the incomparable Reza Jacobs.
Why are there multiple performance dates?
Nothing beats audiences coming together, sitting in a dark theatre with like-minded peers as you watch and enjoy a theatrical experience together. Our hope is to keep some of this theatre magic intact by offering a set schedule where patrons choose a unique date and time to enjoy the concert. We will have a live chat and will be actively engaging with patrons on the evening of their choice, just like we would in a physical theatre.
In addition, our annual UNCOVERED concert is a cherished tradition for groups or corporations alike. To continue to offer unique and innovative group offerings, we have capped the number of patrons to 100 tickets per night.

DEEP DIVE DINNER:
$125 PER PERSON
Deep Dive Dinners are an opportunity to connect with ourselves and those around us through a lively, multi-faceted conversation in a style of conversation you often don’t have, and might not know you’re longing for. We seek not to solve or come to consensus around our topics, but rather to give them space, breath, and perspective that you might not otherwise get in your day to day existence, or in your immediate circles.
Similar to the performer’s process of diving deep into the meaning of a role or song for performance, a Deep Dive Dinner is your chance to deep dive into the experience of being alive right now in this moment of great change.
Deep Dive Dinners will cover the topic of ‘Community & Change’ and includes a delivered dinner to each participant and a ticket to UnCovered on the evening of your choice. Maximum of 12 participants per Deep Dive Dinner.
I had already purchased tickets to UnCovered: Elvis & Dolly, What happens to my tickets?
Deep Dive Dinners are offered by Elenna Mosoff and & The Mission Business Inc. Deep Dive Dinners are offered Wednesday – Sunday, running 5:15 pm – 7:15 pm in advance of each performance.
