Blackball doesn't just 'like' our donors. We LOVE them.

This little sweetheart was donated to the Blackball project by one of our biggest and best supporters, the super-talented, multi-instrumental Heidi Chan. The brilliant Blackball kids at Brant Avenue Public will be putting it to good use almost immediately.
That goes double for our new, super-secret Blackball site 
which we can't tell you about because, like, it's a secret.

Hear what they have to say.

Thanks go to Ella, Lucas, Rachel, Nevaeh, Stella, Allison and Madelyn for taking the words right out of our mouths.

Blackball Is Back.

Musical Chairs. Not.

One week from today, the Blackball performance group will debut new music on a new kind of instrument.

Meet the blackballophon, a MIDI controller we built out of spare robot parts, disused electric guitars and a blue chair.
We've used Arduino and Makey-Makey technology to create a musical control surface that provides beat-making and a good sit-down. Simultaneously.

You know.
For kids.

Blackball performs at 6:00 PM Wednesday 20 June at the Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs' annual general meeting at 20 Portugal Square.
