Help make 2017 the biggest World Music Jam in Canada!
Join us at the Aga Khan on May 20, 2017
We are excited about our plans for World Fiddle Day Toronto 2017, May 20, at the beautiful Aga Khan museum. But we need you to make World Fiddle Day 2017 bigger and better than ever. First we start the day with 2 fiddle workshops. Join us for the afternoon Around-the-World jam (FREE for audience members) where we play our way through 25 countries in 3 hours.
Then relax in the acoustically spectacular auditorium of the Aga Khan for an evening concert of our 5 wonderful guest artists (FREE for 25 and under, FREE with Membership, Non-members $25, ticket info available soon)
PLAYERS/SUPPORTERS: We encourage you all to consider taking out a membership to World Fiddle Day Toronto, whether or not you play a bowed instrument. Membership supports the artistic activities of the day, our Community workshops (open to all) and our Outreach programs to schools to encourage them to go beyond the musical boundaries of their curriculum.
