In announcing the details, Heritage Minister Melanie Joly said the TSO would be working with various orchestras throughout the country to highlight the work of iconic Canadian musicians, as well as new and emerging artists.  Joly says the effort will create a soundtrack as rich and diverse as our country.

TSO V.P. of Marketing, Dave Postill, says the purpose of the Canada 150 mosaic is to highlight and showcase Canada’s musical talent, including over 36 orchestras from communities across the country.

The government is also spending $10 million to sponsor community events across the country next year.
