We’re so excited to have one of Canada’s greatest voices, award-winning jazz vocalist, Molly Johnson performing at CreativeTO! With her highly anticipated new album, “Meaning To Tell Ya,” produced by multiple GRAMMY Award-winning producer Larry Klein, just released, you’ll get to hear selections from this intriguing mix of jazz, funk, soul and groove live and up close! Johnson has graced the international stage performing for some of the world’s most prominent figures, including the Prince and late Princess of Wales, Nelson Mandela and legendary producer and trumpeter Quincy Jones.

Honourees


Robert and Julia Foster

CreativeTO’s arts gala will celebrate long term former Chairman, Robert Foster, who was instrumental in helping Artscape ‘reach for the stars,’ as he does now so well as Chair of both TO Live and Business for the Arts. We could not celebrate leadership and community achievement in Toronto without jointly saluting Robert’s wife, Julia Foster C.M., who has also chaired many of our largest and most vital arts organizations.
