See You At the CIMA Gala!

By FYI Staff

If you haven’t booked your seat for the CIMA Celebration & Awards Gala, time is running out, and available seats are going fast.


The 5th annual, set for June 10 at Lithuanian House Banquet Halls in Toronto’s High Park district, has fast transformed itself from nervous Nellie to a must-attend event on the celebrity calendar of Canada’s music biz.

Hosted by CBC Music radio personality, Angeline Tetteh-Wayoe, the best and the rest of Maple Music’s creators, business mavericks, politicos and wily impresarios are gathering to celebrate the laudable accomplishments gained by Stuart Johnston and crew for CIMA’s membership. It's also an event that can be called on to trumpet the need for continued lobbying to affect change–in a range of issues such as copyright, funding, and cross-border work permits --and celebrate its own.
