An evening of multi-faith music at U of T

February 9, 2010

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.”
