The Jewish General Hospital Centre for Child Development and Mental Health will hold its annual fundraiser on Wednesday, May 28 (7 p.m.) at the Quartier Cavendish Cineplex Theatre, featuring the Spanish film Tocur Y Luchar (To Play and To Fight). It will be shown with English subtitles.
This film introduces one of the most important and beautiful social phenomena in recent history - an incredible network of youth orchestras, designed to expose poor and rural children (Viva! Sistema) to the wonders of music. It is a movement that has spread worldwide, from its beginning in Venezuela. The wonderful St. Gabriel Elementary School String Ensemble will also perform.
