The Bliss i-Band is a Toronto group of 12 members that meets weekly to learn about music and explore group music-making through the use of iPad-based virtual instruments. Each member contributes a unique style to the ensemble music. We are supported by the Lillian Meighen and Don Wright Foundation, the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Arts Council.
