RAFFI Brings His Singable Songs to Centre in the Square – Enter To Win


We'll start with the Disclaimer - Yes, we did receive complimentary tickets, but this just means we're able to offer you a chance attend too! Enter the contest at the end of this post!




Get Together with Raffi


RAFFI was well known in my house growing up.  We had SINGABLE SONGS and MORE SINGABLE SONGS by Raffi.  These albums were well used and often the background music for whatever activity happened to be going on that day.  Raffi’s music has spanned decades beginning in 70’s (as you can see by the styles in the video below) and continuing now that Raffi himself is his 70s.  He was such a famous Canadian that when Centre in the Square named the theatre portion of the venue the Raffi Armenian Theatre, I thought it was for Raffi the Children’s performer I grew up hearing about.  It made sense to me as his name is Raffi and he is Armenian.  It wasn’t until recent years that I learned of the Symphony Conductor Raffi Armenian.  I guess it shows what an impression RAFFI left on me! Either way, Raffi hopes to GET TOGETHER with you and your family at the Raffi Armenian Theatre at Centre in the Square on June 3, 2018.


 

Raffi is a singer, songwriter, producer, author, lecturer, and tireless advocate for children.  He is best known for his work as a children’s entertainer and advocate whose string of gold and platinum-selling recordings includes his iconic song, “Baby Beluga”.  Once called “the most popular children’s singer in the English-speaking world” (Washington Post) and “Canada’s all-time children’s champion” (Toronto Star), Raffi is also a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations’ Earth Achievement Award.  He has published three books for adults and holds four honorary degrees. He has never advertised to children or made any commercial endorsements aimed at kids. His commitment to treating his young fans with respect has changed society’s outlook on music made for children.
