“The world of OrKidstra is a world of smiles, encouragement and mutual respect. It’s wonderful to see so many children thriving and achieving high standards of excellence. Their harmony extends beyond music.”

Children who become immersed in a musical environment become better human beings—because they learn to work in a team, they become more sensitive and creative. These skills can be applied in every aspect of their lives.

This [KiddlyWinks] program has been a huge success. There is no comparison, or no other program, that could offer a similar learning experience for our children.

Music is my favourite thing. Ever since I was a kid, every time I’d sing a song, I’d try to sing my best. So each time I sing, I notice that I’m getting better and better. When I sing I feel happy. That’s why I have a great day every time I go to KidSingers.
I wanted to tell you how thrilled I was to attend and hear these marvellous talented kids perform. I had goose bumps and tears all at the same time!!
Music is important to me because the world would be nothing without music. If there was no music, everybody would just be droopy, walking around. Music makes the world a better place. If you’re feeling sad and you listen to music, it can brighten your day. That has happened to me.
It is truly miracle that the musical talent of these extraordinary children has been tapped and harnessed . They are terrific! The most amazing thing is their enthusiasm and happiness.
I am honoured to be a small part of this wonderful organization…
OrKidstra makes music fun. And music makes life interesting. It can make you feel good and make others feel good. I like OrKidstra because it gives me the chance to do the best I can. When children learn music, bad things don’t happen.
It was great to visit an OrKidstra rehearsal and to see such eagerness, joy, and discipline in the faces of so many young children! The staff is exceptional, and their dedication and generosity deserve your support.
