Tongue in Cheek Productions is creating delicious re-imaginings of classical music across the GTA!

There are a multitude of passionate, deep, and committed performing artists in our city and throughout Canada. From all walks of life, from incredibly diverse backgrounds, they choose to undertake a specialized profession with limited prospects in order to express real, tangible things that are common to us all. And most of it in a highly crystallized genre of art: classical music. We choose to honour their effort while simultaneously honouring our shared humanity through the refined nature of this music. To what end?

No end, friends. Our cause is to un-cause; To separate the music that we love from the more restrictive aspects of it’s presentation. We have no purpose other than to enjoy ourselves, and share that enjoyment with all who join us. With us you will find no hand-in-lap, utterly silent recital atmosphere. No literal (or metaphorical) tuxedos. No formality beyond the respect that is due to each and every human being in the room, be they artist or audience, crew or admin, adult or child.

Mark Twain said it’s the test of good religion whether or not you can joke about it. We feel the same about this art form. There will be jokes. There will be irreverence. There will be self-deprecation and good-natured mockery. And thus plenty of room for love.

So sit back. Relax, for god’s sake! Listen, share, post, eat, drink, react, breathe in and breathe out. We’re here to enjoy ourselves. So are you!

 20% off tickets to every upcoming show! Whoa now. We send you a special discount code before every show. eg. for Winterreise, a full-price ticket has a discount of 8.75. Enough for a beer!


-A shout-out on our website, and a shout-out at the show

-A warm hug from Aaron *and* Mike. Isn't that sweet?

Make this a one-time donation, unless you're feeling crazy (we won't stop you)! How do we lowly arts workers reward such incredible generosity?!


-Four free tickets to all upcoming shows

-Four free drinks at all shows where there's alcohol (ie. all of them?)

-The shout-out but much, much louder

-Aaron and Mike do an in-house recital (rep discussed with you!) for you, your family, or your archnemesis

We call this the Anti-Anxiety Goal. At this level of patronage, breaking even on a show is way, way more attainable. Which means it's easier for us to pay our artists what they deserve. Which means the artists involved can afford to not just perform in our shows but coach, develop, and fine-tune their craft even more, which makes for a) better shows and b) electrifyingly happy performers!
