Smashing Barriers - Stories That Inspire.

Music Without Barriers’ first benefit concert

First, we want to thank the students at Humber College, especially Ashley Kurkjian, for organizing this event. We also want to give a special shout out to Alex Dean, one of Canada’s foremost jazz saxophonists and an instructor at Humber. This event wouldn’t be possible without their time and commitment.

This event will feature Humber’s Saxophone Quartets and the Stereoscope Saxophone Duo. It’ll be an evening full of wonderful music – and it’s all for a great cause. Proceeds will be donated to Music Without Barriers.

Our goal with the money raised remains the same: to give every person, regardless of physical or cognitive obstacles, the chance to be a star. More specifically, your donations will help fund MWB’s new community project: a full album featuring big artists collaborating with individuals who have a disability. Help support this project by attending this event.

We hope to see you there!

Here are the details:

  • Saturday, March 21st – 7pm to approximately 9:15pm
  • Healing Arts, at 80 Gladstone Avenue in Toronto
  • $12 at the door

Here’s a sample of what’s in store:

If you can’t make it, there are other ways you can support MWB. Check out our “Many Ways To Donate” page – you could also purchase Joey’s song “That Thing”, directly from iTunes. Proceeds are split between Joey and Music Without Barriers.

Lastly, be sure to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.

As always, thank you for your continued support.
