The Women’s Musical Club of Toronto develops audiences of the future with its Student Outreach Programme. The WMCT invites middle and high school students from public schools in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond to attend its concerts free of charge. This practice is well received by the schools and the students. The artists make a special point of interacting with the students after the concert. And, unlike in some larger venues, the students are seated close to the stage and are able to fully experience the concerts. This programme is sponsored by WMCT member and volunteer Dianne Henderson.
Faculty and students from The Glenn Gould School of The Royal Conservatory; the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto; and the Department of Music, York University, also enjoy this privilege.
