About Us


Inspired by a program developed in Venezuela in the mid 1970s, The Big Sound creates opportunities for children and youth who, for various reasons, are often excluded from extra-curricular musical activities, such as playing in an ensemble or orchestra.

In-School – During-School Program Back up and Running

We’re very happy to announce that our Ontario Trillium Foundation funded In-School-During-School Music and Movement Program has recommenced at Hillcrest Elementary School.  Although the program is now delivered virtually, the students are able to participate once again.  Each classroom has been provided with a tote containing enough Orff instruments (e.g. Sand Blocks, Spoons, Castanets, Shaker Eggs, Maracas, Jingle Bells) to provide one for each student.

A Big Sound shout out to Kevin Wilson, Principal at Hillcrest for helping to make this happen!!
