Raffi, North America’s preeminent family entertainer, turns 70 this year, and he is marking the occasion with a new album and a series of #belugagrads concerts.

Raffi is a singer, songwriter, producer, author, lecturer, and tireless advocate for children. He is best known for his work as a children’s entertainer and advocate whose string of gold and platinum-selling recordings includes his iconic song, “Baby Beluga”. Once called “the most popular children’s singer in the English-speaking world” (Washington Post) and “Canada’s all-time children’s champion” (Toronto Star), Raffi is also a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations’ Earth Achievement Award. He has published three books for adults and holds four honorary degrees. He has never advertised to children or made any commercial endorsements aimed at kids. His commitment to treating his young fans with respect has changed society’s outlook on music made for children.

“I love singing for children and families,” says Raffi. “In 2018, i look forward to hearing more ‘beluga grads’ and their kids singing favourites like “Baby Beluga,” “Down By The Bay,” and Bananaphone!” and others from my recent Best of Raffi album.”

In 2010, Raffi founded his non-profit Centre for Child Honouring. With the motto “Respecting Earth & Child,” the Centre is at the heart of a global movement that views honouring children as the best way to create sustainable, peacemaking societies.

A Raffi concert is best suited for children old enough to talk, sing or clap along. While Raffi's music is enjoyed by babies at home, the live music experience is much louder and very different than hearing the recorded songs at home. While babies are welcome, they may not enjoy a loud concert singalong. Also, please keep in mind that the ticket policy of a theatre is that every person needs a ticket.

For a child that has not yet celebrated his or her first birthday, such child is permitted into the performance by first obtaining a “babes-in-arms” ticket, free of charge, from the Box Office with the purchase of an accompanying regular price ticket.

There are a limited number of babes-in-arms tickets available for each performance on a first-come first-served basis, and they are to be picked up at Box Office when you arrive on the day of the show.

VIP Meet and Greet tickets include an opportunity to meet Raffi in person after the show. Proceeds benefit the Centre for Child Honouring.
