Outreach Programs

Canta Arya has participated in fundraising events such as Voices for Africa, Empty Bowls for Martha’s Table, and the Kingston Symphony House Tour concerts.

This year, in affiliation with the Alzheimer Society of Kingston, Canta Arya will be presenting a series of concerts to nursing home residents afflicted with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Outreach Overseas

For the past 10 years, Canta Arya families have donated violins, bows, rosin, books and other materials to the music projects in South Africa’s townships. Canta Arya’s support of the on-going teacher training course (co-directed by Karen-Michele Kimmett) has inspired other studios and families from Paris to Boston, to Quebec City and Barrie, to donate materials and funds for this endeavor, touching and improving the lives of hundreds of disadvantaged children in the process.
