MUSIC FOR A CAUSE BENEFIT CONCERT

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018: Raising funds for SickKids

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 Hospital For Sick Children (SickKids), Canada's most research-intensive hospital and the largest centre in the country dedicated to improving children's health.


On a personal note, several of our CMC students have benefited from care at SickKids, the most recent being 5 year old Olivia, one of our Musical Preludes students who was recently diagnosed with leukemia and is currently receiving treatment at SickKids. She is one brave girl and has inspired us to choose SickKids as our concert target this year!
