Il Comites di Toronto, in collaborazione con l’Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Villa Charities Inc., Associazione Amarcord, Italian Heritage Month Foundation e il Congresso Nazionale degli Italo-Canadesi, presenta un concerto tributo on line, per celebrare il mese di giugno, Italian Heritage Month, in tempo di pandemia globale.
Cinque artiste italo-canadesi ci terranno compagnia con la loro musica, abbattendo le distanze, venerdì, 12 giugno alle ore 8 pm, sul canale YouTube dell’Istituto Italiano di Cultura.
An online musical homage dedicated to
Italian Heritage Month
Friday, June 12 | 8:00pm EST
Due to the global health crisis, this year the Italian Canadian community cannot celebrate Italian Heritage Month in June with its usual array of live, in-person events, festivals and concerts. We will all miss the opportunity to gather and celebrate Italian heritage while enjoying music, cinema, food, and good company. It is especially difficult as our thoughts go to Italy, one of the hardest-hit countries by the pandemic.
Instead, to celebrate Italian Heritage Month 2020, an online tribute concert will take place on June 12 via the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto’s YouTube Channel. Vorrei fossi qui – Wish you were here will feature some of the best local Italian Canadian musical talent, performing a variety of genres and styles. The concert will feature a line-up of all-female artists.
The event is a collaborative effort between a number of Italian Canadian and Italian organizations, including the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto, the National Italian Canadian Congress, the Italian Heritage Month Foundation, ComItEs, Associazione Amarcord, and Villa Charities Inc.
