The MusiCounts TD Community Music Program transforms communities across Canada by giving underserved youth access to musical instruments and equipment. To date, the initiative has supported almost 100 programs across Canada with over $1.7 million provided in instruments and equipment.
Yesterday, the 2017 MusiCounts TD Community Music Program recipients from all across Canada were announced, a total of 27 community music programs will receive $500,000 worth of instruments and equipment. Congratulations to all 2017 recipients! Please see MusiCounts.ca for the full recipient list.
On November 21 at the JUNO Awards press conference in Vancouver, the BC Youth Chinese Orchestra performed to celebrate all 2017 recipients. Additionally, to highlight all 2017 recipients, MusiCounts is showcasing several programs from across the country in a blog series. The first blog launches November 22, stay tuned to MusiCounts.ca for updates.
Aeroplan Miles meant the MusiCounts team was able to travel to Vancouver for this announcement to raise MusiCounts profiles. The miles also mean that MusiCounts was able to connect with community music program recipients in the Vancouver area. Thank you for your donation!
