Doors open for music at Southminster began in 2013 as a six-part Lenten concert series. An instant success, Southminster extended it past Easter that year, and save for two-month breaks each summer, the program has been running since.
Presented on Wednesdays at noon — precisely the mid-point of the week — DOMS is a musical oasis, offering programming that nourishes the heart, mind and soul, and serving as a hub for musical connection in the community.
Each week from September to June, amazing artists from across the region, Canada and beyond meet established fans and make new ones playing in DOMS. Simultaneously, local audiences enjoy music they love and also discover performers and styles they’ve never heard before in a series they can count on for consistent quality.
DOMS survived the COVID-19 pandemic by live-streaming its concerts, initially through Facebook (including for a few months by artists from their homes), and now continues to offer them digitally through YouTube, visible on these pages.
The DOMS formula mixes an outstanding venue, unique presentation time, exceptional performers, world-class piano, supportive in-person and online community, and terrific team of staff an volunteers into a movement that has proven itself sustainable over the along term.
