We are sad to announce that due to concerns over the recent outbreaks of Coronavirus and in consideration of the health and safety of participants and staff members, we have decided to postpone our winter workshop in Toulouse this coming January until further notice.

However... Stay tuned for Canto's upcoming online programs and events!

*Covid 19 policy :

We are monitoring the developing Covid situation closely. 
If at any time it becomes clear that Covid 19 compromises the health and safety of the artists, or if France closes to travel, the program will not take place as scheduled. We will update all participants throughout December, and we ask that no payments be made until Canto officially confirms that the program will take place. 

*All participants must be vaccinated
