Our very own Edith is helping to organise a Québécois set dance / contra dance to raise money for the Centre d’inspiration jeunesse, a non-profit organisation that helps communities in Haiti become self-sustainable.
Enlisted in this cause is some pretty high-powered musical talent:
- On fiddle, Richard Forest — well-known tunesmith and fiddler extraordinaire. (Watch a video from a Réveillons! concert in 2008)
- Calling, we are lucky to welcome Jean-François Berthiaume — step-dancer, percussionists and one of the most compelling callers around (Watch a step-dance video from a Réveillons! concert in 2007)
Joining them will be some local musicians, including Rob and Peter from our weekly sessions.
There will also be a silent auction. You can call
416-796-6379 for more information or to donate items for the silent auction
Date: Saturday, November 17, 2012
Time: 7 p.m.
Venue: Dovercourt House, 805 Dovercourt Avenue (map)
Cost: $10 per person, or 2 people for $15
We are certainly looking forward to this event. If you can’t make it, you can still support this worthwhile cause online.
