Providence Manor and Canta Arya are grateful to have won the Ontario 2021 AdvantAge Award for building sustainable communities. We are also grateful for our 2021 Nomination for the Kingston Mayor’s Award.

Since March 2020, Canta Arya has organized live courtyard concerts for providence manor residents in addition to virtual recitals and concerts. A new feature of the program is the CMCs – Canta Musical Chats, which are one on one chats between residents and students and have been a wonderful chance to connect with our alum.

In 2020/2021 Canta Arya offered 28 virtual group classes, recitals
and summer concerts at the Manor Gazebo. Over the past two years, we have
hosted numerous masterclasses with outstanding Canadian and international teachers.

The documentary “Resonance: Music Across The Ages” premiered on YouTube Monday, March 15th, 2021, at 7 p.m.

It is an inspiring tribute to both the Canta Arya/ Providence Manor Collaboration and to music’s power to foster joy in the midst of COVID times.
