This multi-artist show is live-streamed to your school in real time, hearing directly from musical guests sharing from their own traditions; Chris McKhool, Ernie & Maryem Tollar, Aviva Chernick, Suba Sankaran & Dylan Bell, Silk Road Music, Shannon Thunderbird & Sandy Horne, and Kevin & Drew from Sultans of String!
Inspired by travels around the world, Chris McKhool and friends celebrate the multicultural mosaic of our country with songs about Bodhi Day (Buddhist), Carnival (Quebec), Chanukah, Chinese New Year, Christmas, Diwali, Kwanzaa (Pan-African), Indigenous Traditions, Ramadan & Eid and Winter Solstice. Celebrate! is a window into many cultures from around the world and provides young audiences with a glimpse into the different customs, celebrations and festivities enjoyed in Canada. Traditional and original songs by Chris encourage us to share with our neighbours and friends and celebrate together!
“Many have tried but none have come as close to capturing what it means to truly celebrate multiculturalism as Chris McKhool. The Toronto singer-songwriter epitomizes what many Canadians have come to love about this country.”
– Deanne Fisher, City Parent
