Virtual Earth, Seas & Air concerts for K-Grade 6

And that’s a WRAP! My first ever live streaming Earth, Seas & Air concert for K-Grade 6 classes, direct from home. Thanks to the staff and students for making this sooooo much fun! The experience was really beyond my expectations and filled my heart with joy that I could share my love of music and the environment with young people again!
Email me at chris@fiddlefire.com if you are interested in having a celebration with your entire school community before the end of the year! Thanks to Alejandro Salgado Cendales and MASC for all their support getting this up and running! Check out https://www.facebook.com/ChrisMcKhoolKidsMusic/

Live stream shows for festivals and schools

To support festivals and schools during this time, I have set up a super hi-speed live-stream and pre-tape space in my house!

In the past month I have presented for national events NAC CanadaPerforms, Coalition Canada’s Music Monday, and Canadian Musician Magazine, as well as Toronto’s City Hall Live, Hamilton Arts Council, and coming up are events for Luminato Festival and Markham Virtual Music Festival.

I can do Live streaming directed to your audience naming your event and sponsors in the presentation, or a combination of live, mixed with professionally produced multi-camera videos. Email me at chris@fiddlefire.com for details!

Live stream for the Hamilton Artists Relief Fund – Tues May 5

Copy of Copy of HAMILTON ARTISTS RELIEF FUND.pngSo pleased to be able to be a part of this on Tuesday May 5.   In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hamilton Arts Council (HAC) presents the Hamilton Artist Relief Fund and Online Performance Series. HAC understands that the outbreak of COVID-19 presents extraordinary challenges for artists and arts organizations in Hamilton, with unprecedented loss of revenue from performances, community events, education and professional presentations.

The Hamilton Artist Relief Fund is focused on raising and distributing emergency relief funds for artists struggling during this difficult time and providing a curated online platform for local artists to present and perform to a virtual audience. 100% of the donations collected for the Relief Fund will be distributed directly to artists in need.
