COMMUNITY OUTREACH THROUGH SONG

“We Care” was used to promote the City of Vaughan’s Peace Tree Festival during which children and their families celebrate peace and diversity.  It was also used for a televised PSA for Project CODE so children everywhere can reach their full potential

“Better Place”, “The Golden Rule” and “Reaching Out to You” were scored by Sistema Toronto and performed during a fundraising event.  This aided in their mission to provide free ensemble-based music lessons to students and expand their program into the Toronto District School Board’s Yorkwoods P.S.
