Sundays 2-4 pm; ongoing class

Most every Sunday afternoon from 2- 4, a group of enthusiastic community members gathers at 18 Thorncliffe Park Drive and transforms an ESL classroom into a vibrant space of music and joy.
In 2017, are growing the goodness of the Drum and Sing Ensemble with the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council. We have received a grant to bring in a series of guest instructors to bring specialized teaching to the group and to create a piece which can become part of the groups repertoire. The guest instructors are master drummer and percussionist, Derek Gray, vocalist and choral leader, Hussein Janmohamed, and Indigenous artist and activist, Leslie McCue. The group will also work with a visual artist and local clothing designers to create a logo and costuming, drum straps for standing or walking performances, and original cases for the drums.
