TORONTO, ON – Canada’s most multicultural campus will host a musical celebration featuring performances from various faith-based groups on Wednesday, February 24 at 7:15 p.m. 

Musical talent from the University of Toronto’s highly diverse student body – including ensembles from the Muslim, Jewish, Christian, First Nations and Hindu faiths – will perform with the goal of raising money to eradicate malaria.

“These students are a model of how religious communities can work together for a common good,” says Richard Chambers, director of the Multi-Faith Centre. “They’re building on shared values – like the desire to help others in need – to create truly harmonious results.”
