Just 2 days to go until the event! Who’s excited?! 🤩


We want to share a video with you that made us smile today! 😄

This is a video of Toronto-based band ASD, named from Autism Spectrum Disorder because all five in the group are on the spectrum.

The band invited people on the spectrum from around the world to film themselves listening and playing along to their cover of Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe." The resulting video includes submissions from 11 countries! 🌎

It is believed that Mozart had Aspergers but ASD was not widely recognised in the 1700's. Maybe this is why Mozart’s music is proven to be so beneficial for those with Aspergers 🎶


Meet our Mozart in Mind performer Ruby 👋

Ruby's most recent opera performances include Romilda in Mozart's 'La Finta Semplice' and Fortuna in Monteverdi's 'L'incoronazione di Poppea at RBC, Kathleen Rode in Stephen McNeff's 'Banished' and the role of hero in Phillip Matty's opera 'Jabberwocky'. Ruby’s personal highlight was performing in English National Opera's 'The Nutcracker' in 2019 🎶
