2017-18 Season Highlights
- VIVA! Youth Singers intends to respond to the findings of the calls to action by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. We will explore music/arts which are inspired by First Nations and indigenous peoples, and will engage in a cultural dialogue with our young singers, guest musicians, and community leaders.
One of these leaders is Dr. Lori-Anne Doloff, Professor at Faculty of Music, University of Toronto. Dr. Doloff will be our advisor throughout the season. We are confident that this journey will inspire children and youth of VIVA! Youth Singers to respond through dialogue and action, as directed by Reconciliation Canada.
