THE SCOOP | Sinfonia Toronto Launches Digital Inclusion Project

Innovation is the name of the game this season as arts groups continue to look for ways to bring music to those that need it most.

Announced today, Sinfonia Toronto has launched the Digital Inclusion Project. This online initiative aims to introduce the orchestra to Toronto’s community music schools and residents in long-term care facilities.

According to Sinfonia Toronto Music Director Nurhan Arman, the project will give orchestra musicians some additional activity and work as lockdowns continue.

“This project is destined to enrich the lives of citizens who can’t attend concerts in person even during normal times, and to inspire and enhance learning for music students,” said Arman.

With support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund, activities will include virtual seminars to supplement the students’ concert experiences and free access to online concerts.

The sessions will include hosts’ introductions about the music and time for students to ask questions and contribute their own comments and reactions. Toronto composer and educator Ron Royer is serving as the seminar consultant.

Data collected from questionnaires will be compiled for analysis at the end of the year and a final project consultant’s report will be shared in an upcoming report by Orchestras Canada.
