Young Voices Toronto awarded grant from Ontario Arts Council

 

Young Voices Toronto (YVT) is pleased to announce that the choir has been awarded a grant from the Ontario Arts Council (OAC). YVT applied to the OAC for funding this past spring. The $12, 929.00 grant supports the operating costs of the 2019-2020 season.

 

“We’re extremely grateful to the Ontario Arts Council for this much needed funding,” said Gena Norbury, General Manager. “These funds will allow our YVT choral program to continue to thrive and provide high-quality music education opportunities to our choristers. Our choristers will not only receive exemplary choral and theorectical instruction but also one on one weekly sight singing classes.”

 

“Young Voices Toronto is most appreciative of the Ontario Arts Council grant,” said Nicole Staples Dorey, Chair of the Board. “The board, under direction of the artistic team,  is working towards using this funding in a variety of ways to increase exposure and availability to all children in the High Park community and beyond.”
