TASSO's Spain Trip, 2019

$260 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 23 days
Toronto All Stars Steel Orchestra (TASSO) will be representing Canada in Spain in July 2019!

Since the beginning of this year, the orchestra has ramped up its practice and preparation for our 2019 Spain trip. One of the single biggest expenses for the band is the transport of our instruments, consisting of 75 pieces. The steelpan orchestra presents a unique challenge with its pans,  drums, stands and supporting musical equipment, that cost approximately $15,000 to transport to and from this festival. Over the last six months, we have vigorously fundraised to achieve our goal. Our fundraising drive for this tour will climax with our annual fundraiser concert in June 2019.

Unfortunately, we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation this year as we are short of funds to ensure every band member who wants to participate in this tour is able to do so. For this reason, we are extending our drive to the public at large who would otherwise love to support our cause but cannot make it in person to our concert or other fundraisers.

In the best-case scenario, we are hoping to reach our gofundme goal of $15,000 by the middle of June. Success with this gofundme drive and our other fundraising efforts will help us reach our goal for shipping the instruments and subsidy for our band members in need. TASSO is asking for your support to help the orchestra achieve its dream of competing and performing in Spain in the summer of 2019. In anticipation, we welcome any donation because no donation is too small to help us.

In Spain, we will be performing in cities such as Barcelona, Buñol, Alicante, and Valencia. Please visit our website where we will post our blog. You can follow along with us as these young musicians are mentored through music, gain social and global awareness and learn about the power of togetherness from this international experience.

We appreciate your generosity and your belief in us as we continue to showcase our musicianship, ambassadorship and the artistry of the steelpan, the only musical instrument to be invented in the twentieth century, to the rest of the world.

Founded in 2000, TASSO is made up of students from many different schools in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The musicians, who range in age from ten to nineteen years old, have blossomed into a stage-shaking, soul-stirring musical force to be reckoned with.
