About US

The DT Concert Series is a monthly all-ages event showcasing some of Canada's most talented touring musicians. The series was established in 2016 as a partnership between Noisemaker Management and The Arlington Hotel and is hosted at the intimate and historic Dominion Telegraph Building in downtown Paris, Ontario.

Husband and wife team Tim Des Islets and Michelle Kloepfer of Noisemaker Management moved to Paris from Toronto in 2013 to the county where Michelle was born.  Tim had worked in the music industry for over a decade and live music was always a central part of their lives together so they quickly noticed the limited options available in town. Michelle's mom Sandy always reminisced about how great the small town music scene was in the area when she was their age so for three years the couple dreamed about creating a new music community where they loved to live. When The Arlington Hotel was purchased by The Other Bird the two businesses quickly developed a vision to bring music back to Paris and the DT Concert Series was born.

With a wide array of musicians playing to the sold out Dominion Telegraph Event Centre, the series has become a central part of the event calendar in the County of Brant. Drawing crowds from around Southwestern Ontario, we hope to host you soon at one of our next events!
