I am so honoured to have been part of this year's Culture Days celebration. Culture Days, a cross Canada celebration of art & culture is celebrating their 5th year in existence. This year I was based at Dufferin/St. Clair and Eatonville library giving 5 interactive hands on workshops to children, teens and adults. What a another wonderful year of connecting with the public and giving them a chance to learn about this illustrious instrument.
1. Giving a demonstration of the versatility of the instrument. While performing Andre Bocelli & Celine Dion's "Time To Say Goodbye" and a first time senior attendee sang along in Italian - WOW!
2. A visiting class from Regal Road school creating magnificent steelpan art based on our discussions and hands on activities.
3. Connecting with my youngest attendee (2 years old) and enjoying a moment of her creating a song.
4. Guest artists, North Star Children's Steel Orchestra performing for the attendees.
