Share the Music

Helping young people experience the world through music.

Share the Music, an arts and education outreach program presented by the Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall, celebrates its 18th season of sharing music with young people (ages 8-18) of all backgrounds. The program enhances and broadens students’ musical horizons by exposing them to world-class performers and related pre-concert educational sessions. Performances selected for Share the Music events include a wide range of classical, jazz, blues and world music, providing many opportunities to awaken students to new ways of listening, seeing and thinking.

Please check back in August for Share the Music’s 2017-18 events!
