Each spring, CMC sponsors a benefit concert for various causes close to our hearts, with our CMC teachers and advanced students donating their time and talent. This year, we're raising money for the David Suzuki Foundation.
Environmental concerns have been brought to the forefront more than ever recently, from the raging fires in Australia to more awareness of the lack of safe drinking water in First Nations communities right here in Ontario.
Founded in 1990, the David Suzuki Foundation is a national, bilingual non-profit organization headquartered in Vancouver, with offices in Toronto and Montreal. Through evidence-based research, policy analysis, education and citizen empowerment, they conserve and protect the natural environment to create a sustainable Canada.
"We are interconnected with nature, and with each other. What we do to the planet and its living creatures, we do to ourselves: This is the fundamental truth guiding our work at the David Suzuki Foundation."
We are excited to announce another amazing eclectic line-up of fantastic musicians this year:
