On Friday May 5 at Toronto’s Glenn Gould studio a dazzling roster of Canadian musical, literary and stage talent presents Voices that Care, an event that raises funds for a dementia support program. Those scheduled in the lineup include iconic folk singer/songwriter Murray McLauchlan, best-selling author Margaret Atwood, East Coast fiddle sensation Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, Soulpepper Theatre Company founder, actor/director Albert Schultz, acclaimed Canadian tenor Ben Heppner, dancer Travis Knights and blues singer/guitarist Matt Andersen.
