The Canada Symphony is a night of gratitude and acknowledgement for the compassionate and brave people who received and helped the thousands of Irish Famine Migrants who landed in Canada 175 years ago.
Steamships filled with men, women and children were laden to capacity with passengers exhausted and sick from Typhus from their weeks-long journey. They would fill most of Canada's major cities, and stretch its humanitarian capacities to their limits.
Without the generosity and bravery of Canadians, both settler and indigenous, some of whom lost their lives caring for the Migrants, the rich history shared between Canada and Ireland might not exist today.
The music composed by renowned Odhrán Ó Casaide is a ‘Thank You Letter’ to all those who put humanity above all during difficult times.
