KlezKanada’s 2020 Virtual Retreat would be impossible without the generosity of its donors. Every gift, no matter the amount, ensures that we can host world-class faculty, support students and emerging artists, stage incredible concerts, and – whether online or in-person – build a strong, vibrant, and creative community open to people of all ages and backgrounds.
