Continuum partners again this year with composer Christopher Thornborrow and the Toronto District School Board to provide a platform for student composers and performers from across the GTA. Over the course of several months, students at elementary and junior high schools across the city will work with unique software to create new compositions; Christopher Thornborrow will take their work and create sheet music, which will then be performed by Continuum Contemporary Music along with students from Riverdale Collegiate Institute.

The March 31st performance is free and open to the public.
