There is no doubt that more than ever, we have reason to voice support of the arts in Canada. It’s inspiring to see so many come together to share their appreciation and love of the arts in Toronto and we are fortunate to have so many opportunities to do so. We’re a city heaping with talent and creativity and collaboration and we’re honoured to be a home to some of what Toronto offers, as host and as a gathering place for people to share, discover, and enjoy cultural events.
Culture Days, now in its 2nd year, is a national initiative featuring numerous free, interactive activities that bring the public “behind the scenes,” to discover the world of artists and creators (+ more), at work in our community.
Tomorrow (Saturday), we are thrilled to co-host, along with the great Toronto Symphony Orchestra, a unique opportunity for the whole family to come to Roy Thomson Hall, curl up under the glow of our lobby windows and hear from the TSO’s Woodwind Quintet as they introduce the sounds and individual instruments of the woodwind family and perform music by some of the most beloved classical composers in this intimate setting.
To paraphrase the words of musical ambassador Bobby McFerrin, music is an international language that allows us all to speak and understand each other. Culture Days is a way for all Canadians to experience and participate in cultural activities together and we are thrilled to be a part of it.
