We are very excited to be partnering with Voices Rock Canada in our stores/studios this year. This innovative approach to ensemble singing is not only modern and fun for kids, it's sneaky educational...
Founded in 2016 by Cheryl Bower, Toronto based real estate professional and lifelong musical super enthusiast. Having taken part in various stage and musical projects over the past 40 years, Cheryl has a keen understanding of the benefits of singing in a young persons life. In an effort to bring her dream of children's rock choirs into reality, she sought out a musical partner to run the choirs. Her search led her to Toronto based musical director Anthony Bastienon, a perfect choice for the job. Anthony has years of professional musical director experience combined with a lifetime of small choir experience in his own community, first as a participant and later as the leader. Voices Rock Canada (Toronto edition) is lucky to have Anthony as their main educator and choir leader.
