Founded in 2007, Reaching Out Through Music provides musical opportunities to the youth of St. James Town, one of North America’s most densely-populated and ethnically diverse communities. We seek to enrich children’s lives by offering active participation in choral, instrumental and other programs, including the opportunity to attend some of the myriad concerts in the City of Toronto. We create social opportunities for children by encouraging them to share a love of music, performance and teamwork through collaborative choral and instrumental ensembles. A critical part of child development, music education has been proven to provide children with cognitive and emotional benefits that will have a lifelong impact on learning and social skills. ROTM has a tradition of hosting concerts yearly, and endeavour to do so locally, and accessibly. Our concerts feature up-and-coming artists and our own students. ROTM is expanding and increasing the number of musical learning opportunities for its members, including a Kinder Khoir & Ukulele Choir. We will hold our annual Fundraising concert in April, 2020. Our dedicated teachers and volunteers look forward to an enriching season, and we welcome inquiries.
