Special Guest from Germany

With Senior Sorcery being one of our longest-running programs (next to our children’s community outreach program, My Magic Hands) we are in the fortunate position, after so many years, of returning to the same centres over and over again, some upwards of a dozen times. So we are always pleased when we are able to offer a special magical treat. Last week, residents at Providence Healthcare in Toronto received a special performance from visiting magician, Jörg Alexander.

Jörg was visiting Toronto all the way from Munich, Germany as the last top on a twelve-city tour of North America. He was here in the city to give a special seminar for magicians, but made a detour along the way to help us to share wonder for a marvellous group of seniors. We would like to thank him for being so generous with his time and his magic.

Special Guest Performance

An audience at the Houses of Providence in Toronto (who certainly know a thing or two about magic) were treated to a special guest performance. Magician Chris Pilsworth was visiting from Ottawa and was gracious enough to offer us a special performance as part of our Senior Sorcery program.

Chris was visiting Toronto in order to give a special lecture for the Sid Lorraine Hat & Rabbit Club, a seventy-five-year-old organization that gathers to gether magic enthusiasts of all kinds to teach and share magic. The organization’s namesake, Sid Lorraine, was a central figure in magic in Canada for decades. His memoirs are featured as part of our online exhibition, Sid Lorraine The Magical ChatterBox.

Thank you, Chris, for taking the time to share wonder.

Happy Family Day

Magicana out to celebrate Family Day with a special Senior Sorcery performance in Scarborough. Magician James Alan was invited back for an encore performance at Cedarbrook Lodge. We took advantage of the pleasantly warm February weather as an opportunity to share wonder.
