We are very excited to introduce you to a project that ICOT has been working hard on in the past few months. The Journey: Notes of Hope is an operatic production that tells the story of displacement, diaspora and migration. This production shed lights on the challenges of displacement by refugees and immigrants who migrate to new places in the world.
For this project we are lucky to be working with number of different refugees and new-comer artists in Canada. The concert will happen for two nights on November 2nd and 3rd, 2018 at 8PM at Agricola Lutheran Church at (25 York Mills Rd, Toronto).
