The Toronto based Queer Songbook Orchestra (QSO) are a 12-piece professional chamber pop collective dedicated to exploring and uplifting queer narrative through the last century of pop music. A community based project, the ensemble source their material through the personal stories of queer experience of 2SLGBTQ individuals and the songs that have been most meaningful to them. The Tour of Heart and Mind is a cross Canada series focused on accessing small to mid size cities throughout the country and presenting a show which reflects the lived experience of queer individuals. Founded in 2014, the QSO have played many of the most esteemed stages and festivals across Canada, including the National Arts Centre, Luminato Festival, High Performance Rodeo and Suoni per Il Popolo, and their collaborative album with multi-disciplinary artist Vivek Shraya, Part-Time Woman, was long listed for the 2018 Polaris Music Prize.
