No one in our community should go hungry

CBC Kitchener-Waterloo's annual Sounds of the Season event goes live-to-air from TheMuseum on Friday, Dec. 6 with The Morning Edition's host Craig Norris.

We are now out of tickets for seats, but you're still invited to join the show. Standing room and seats on the stairs will be on a first come-first serve basis starting at 6 a.m.

From musical guests to interviews and even a cooking demonstration, you can attend this holiday performance in person, listen on CBC Radio One 89.1 FM or watch online from the comfort of your home. 

Please give generously to The Food Bank of Waterloo Region. At the Sounds of the Season broadcast event you can donate with: 

  • Food
  • Cash
  • Credit card gift

Last year, the campaign raised enough money and food for 33,000 meals for food bank users in Waterloo region. It was a new record for CBC Kitchener-Waterloo — and one we're hoping to beat this year.

This year's performers and guests

The house musician this year is Andrew Craig.
