    This episode:

    Jake Koffman grew up admiring the accomplishments of not one, but two musical grandfathers who became recipients of The Order Of Canada: Victor Feldbrill, who served as the resident conductor of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and Moe Koffman, the jazz legend behind the iconic “Swinging Shepherd Blues”. Jake is very much a musician, educator and showman in his own right. He's been a professional performer for the last decade or so, and a music teacher. Now, he's teamed up with his wife Ellie to create, The Koffman Academy, a music and dance school in Bloor West Village which will offer dance and music programs. Jake sits down with Mark Wigmore to share memories of his Grandfathers, and how Moe inspired him to become a musician himself.

    And Garvia Bailey continues here fantastic series, “Giant Steps”. This week a celebration of British wunderkind, Jacob Collier.

    And, the countdown to the 2017 Dora Awards started this past Tuesday when Toronto's theatre community convened at the Sony Centre for the announcement of this year's nominees.
