A musical kaleidoscope: Production inspires all ages as it tells the story of Canada's music
You could call Deborah Davis a musical and educational pioneer. But when asked how she's created, produced and successfully run a Canadian production for a decade on a shoestring budget, the energetic artist is quick to point out that it takes a village.

"We've been a remarkable team of people," she says, standing centre stage during a recent rehearsal for the tenth instalment of A Musical Taste of Our Canadian Heritage, a high-energy show aimed at informing, inspiring and appealing to all ages about the history of Canada and its music.

Davis and friends toast Canada's heritage through song and dance

In the hands of the right creative team, the story of how A Musical Taste of Our Canadian Heritage—the home-grown production soon to hit the stage at the Museum of Civilization for a tenth consecutive year—might itself be an inspiring Broadway show.

And the creator of the show, Deborah Davis, could star as herself: an untrained dreamer who sets out with a tiny budget, a big heart, and a grand vision to turn a love for history into a big-stage production that celebrates Canada through its music.
