CENTRE 454 is celebrating 60 years of service in our community! It has grown from humble beginnings in 1954 into an award-winning drop-in day program supporting individuals who are homeless, are inadequately housed, or are living in poverty in our community.
Centre 454 will mark this 60th milestone throughout the year beginning with a benefit concert by the University of Toronto’s HART HOUSE ORCHESTRA on SATURDAY FEBRUARY 15, 2014 at 7:30 pm – a Valentine treat! The concert will be performed at Dominion-Chalmers Church, one of Ottawa’s leading venues for classical music, with guest violin soloist Arkady Yanivker of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. We know from experience that this will be a terrific evening of community celebration and outstanding music!
Hart House Orchestra’s program of music will include:
§ George Butterworth —A Shropshire Lad, Rhapsody for Orchestra
§ Carl Nielsen —Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 33
§ Felix Mendelssohn —Symphony No. 4 (Italian), Op. 90

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
