Superb Musicians gathering for ArtsCan Circle

September 24, 2012

Welcome to my new column here on Stouffville Connects. To celebrate, I'd like to invite you all to a GREAT concert I've organized, so mark Sep 29 on your calendar.

You see I’ve assembled an incredible group of musicians to put on a benefit for ArtsCan Circle, a very worthy cause. ArtsCan Circle sends teams of musicians and artists to remote Canadian Indigenous communities to link creative artists with Indigenous youth at risk. The teams conduct hands-on workshops in playing instruments, songwriting, singing, drama and visual arts to build self-esteem amongst Indigenous youth and encourage postitive outlets for self-expession through the arts. Learn more about ArtsCan Circle at http://www.artscancircle.ca/

The theme of the evening is, appropriately, Songs of Hope & Love

Musicians playing at the benefit include:
Glenn Marais http://www.glennmarais.com/HOME.html
James Brand http://www.jamesbrand.ca/
D’arcy Wickham http://www.darcywickham.com/
Windsong
Marion Drexler http://www.mariondrexlerband.com/
(members of) Essentia Vocal Ensemble http://www.essentiamusic.com/
EmCees – Tara Donaghey & Mike Burns

The event takes place Saturday September 29, 7:30pm at Stouffville’s 19-on-the-Park. Tickets are $15 in advance. $20 at the door. To purchase tickets online & for more details: http://nineteenonthepark.com/songs/
