These three organizations—Toronto Public Library, York University, and the Nai Choir—are collaborating to bring families a joyful, creative, and interactive experience. Toronto Public Library provides an accessible, fun, and engaging space for all people to enjoy learning. The Connecting Culture and Childhood Project at York University works with children around the world to understand how music helps young people adapt to their communities, increase their wellbeing, and learn about culture through music. The Nai Children’s Choir is a place for healing, learning, and rejoicing, with its programs focused on the wellbeing of refugee families. The word “nai” means “the sound of the flute” in Arabic. One Nai Choir member has this to say about being a part of the Nai Choir, “I will keep singing forever. I love to sing. Music helps me make friends and it bring people together because of how fun and important it is. At Nai, the people are so friendly and you get to learn new music, new languages and people make you feel welcome.”
