Over the past 20 years, Canta Arya violin students have performed in numerous fundraising events, including the Voices for Africa concerts, the Empty Bowls concerts for Martha’s Table, A Song for Haiti, dozens of concerts as part of the PM/CA collaboration, the Kingston Symphony House Tour concerts, the KGH Holiday Concert Series, and performances at the Agnes Etherington Arts Centre in support of Canta Arya’s local and overseas music partnerships.

The Canta Arya/Providence Manor Collaboration partnered with The Pro Shooters media production team in the creation of the documentary, “Resonance: Music Across The Ages.” This inspiring film provides insight into the value of the intergenerational musical connections forged between students, long-term care residents, PSWs and families, and we are grateful to be able to share our work with you.

Canta Arya’s ongoing collaboration with Providence Manor brings the joy of music to Manor Residents during the bi monthly Spousal Dinners and auditorium concerts.

Dr. David Barber, Long Term Care Program Education Coordinator & Medical Director at Providence Manor, has attended numerous Canta Arya  concerts at Providence and noted the positive and calming benefits that Canta Arya’s violin music has had on the Manor residents. The success of this musical intergenerational relationship has helped foster meaningful relationships between residents, students, families and  health care workers.

This coming year, Canta Arya students look forward to performing further courtyard concerts at Providence Manor, and participating in the new Canta Musical Chats with residents!
