We will begin the Symposium with an opening welcome by Mississauga Elder and former Chief Carolyn King (member of Massey’s Chapel Royal committee). This will be followed at 1:45 by Robert Busiakiewicz, Director of Music at St James Cathedral, who will give a 45 minute talk in the Chapel on the Anglican tradition of Evensong, exploring its 500 year old roots in reconciliation between Catholics and Protestants. Following this, at 3pm in the Upper Library, Sandra Campbell, Haudenosaunee Pastoral Care Worker at the Toronto Urban Native Ministry will speak about the importance of music – and in particular the drum – in her work of healing. These talks will be followed by an Evensong service in the Chapel at 4pm, in which Canon Paul Wright, St James Palace, will provide a short reflection. At 7:45pm Métis artist Moe Clark will perform and speak about her work around reconciliation with the land through music.
