Sunday, April 28th, 2019: Raising funds for the Canadian Cancer Society

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 Canadian Cancer Society.

Most people have either been touched by cancer or know someone that has. CMC's Director Lusiana dealt with breast cancer a few years back, and this year, one of our CMC team's partner is fighting cancer right now.  Funds raised for the Canadian Cancer Society will help fund promising cancer research, advocate for policies that protect the health of Canadians and provide vital support services to patients and their families.

Concert Line-Up

We are excited to announce another amazing eclectic line-up of fantastic musicians this year:

  • soprano Sonya Harper Nyby, accompanied by Iris Hung

  • violinist and vocalist Ruza Florence McIntyre with Bryan Allen (guitar & vibraphone)
