Description

Then We Take Berlin - A fundraising concert to raise money to send Grade 8 student Alastair Thorburn-Vitols (who who is the Canadian National Champion in both History and Geography) as a member of Team Canada to Berlin, Germany, for the bi-annual International History & Geography Olympiads (http://www.historyolympiad.com) from July 11-22, 2018.

Alastair is an accomplished musician having performed in classical concerts and opera as a solo vocalist with some of the top orchestras in Canada, including the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Alastair will perform in this concert along with Soprano Maria Thorburn, Baritone/Guitarist Alberts Vitols, Pianist Davids Smits, Mississauga Youth Poet Laureate Pujita Verma, Acro/Contemporary dancer Tiana O'Connor, A Cappella Team, Special Guest Afro-Cuban Jazz artist Jane Bunnett (Order of Canada) and others who have generously donated their time.

An unexpected loss of funding has created the possibility that Alastair may not be able to fulfill his dream of participating in this Olympiad. The funds raised will help cover costs for return airfare from Toronto to Berlin, accommodations for Alastair and a chaperone, as well as participation fees. If you are unable to attend, donations will be gratefully accepted on our GoFundMe page https://www.gofundme.com/kids-intl-history-olympiad-dream .
