Share the Music

Research reveals that both children and adults benefit emotionally, intellectually, socially and even physically from the shared experience of live music. Here at the Centre we take pride in being able to create engaging live music experiences for people of all ages with diverse music interests and different backgrounds. Launched in 2010, our Share the Music program aims to enrich the lives of children and adults in our community who face barriers to access.
