As part of their mission, The Sun Ra Arkestra graced the Toronto’s Regent Park area Community Music Schools of Toronto (CMST) for a workshop with children & students before their scheduled show the next day.

Community Music Schools of Toronto (CMST) is a registered charity that gives children and youth a rich and rewarding music and social education, by removing the financial obstacle. 

For over 23 years, CMST have seen that the study of music allows young people to flourish creatively, personally and academically…enriching their lives and future prospects.

Students have access to some of Toronto’s best music teachers and a vast array of musical instruments and options. Students’ study everything from classical piano, strings, voice, brass, wind and percussion to electronic music, songwriting and recording. They make music with fellow students, faculty and even the odd celebrity and perform all over the city. 

CMST also offers countless leadership opportunities through our Youth Committee and mentorship programs and provides employment experience for junior counsellors at our summer music camps. 

In addition to bringing music to kids in Regent Park and Jane Finch, CMST are also giving a music education to Indigenous students at Wandering Spirit School and young newcomers to Canada.

CMST are truly grateful to many individuals, foundations, corporations and government entities for investing in our students and helping them thrive through music.
