OUR GOAL:

The South Georgian Bay Music Foundation (SGBMF) has been established to advance music education in the South Georgian Bay area: Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Stayner, Thornbury and Meaford by providing a variety of musical performances and fundraisers presenting jazz, blues, First Nations, Gospel, bands and choral groups.

SGB Music Foundation appreciates your SUPPORT, IDEAS AND DONATIONS to keep music alive in the schools and to advance a variety of musical forms in the South Georgian Bay area.

In January and February, we started planning for Jazz and Blues at The Station 2020.
This would be our 14th year of great, FREE, live music. The shows would start on June 17 and end on August 19. Every Wednesday evening from 6 to 8 pm at The Station Park, at the Collingwood Museum. 

The community support is wonderful. We are very grateful and truly appreciate our local sponsors. We could not produce these shows without their support. Please use their superb services.

You, the Jazz & Blues at the Station Fans music fans, helped raise $15,000 in 2019. We gave all of the money to local music programs at Collingwood Collegiate Institute, Jean Vanier CHS, Stayner CI, Georgian Bay Secondary School, Beaver Valley Elementary (Thornbury), Beaver Crest Elementary (Markdale), Admiral Elementary, St. Mary’s Elementary, Sound Investment Community Choir and the Beinn Gorm Highlanders. Many, many thanks. YOUR DONATIONS make this all possible!

Like all of us, we need a clear direction and a better understanding of new regulations. Please stay tuned for more info.
We are hopeful LIVE music can happen this summer. We know things will be different.

Relive our past shows along with our future performers on our EVENTS page.

Thank you for your ongoing support and love of local LIVE music. Stay Safe and hope to see you soon!

PLAYING IT FORWARD

It is recognized that all of the South Georgian Bay area elementary and secondary schools have needs for musical instruction, musical instruments, costs of trips to music events and cost of staging shows.  The South Georgian Bay Music Foundation (SGBMF) has been established to raise funds to help students experience the rewards and opportunities of music education by increasing music presentations and financial support for these musical needs.

In addition to supporting music programs in schools, there is also a need in South Georgian Bay for a Performing Arts Centre that can be shared by various music, theatre and arts groups. Let’s work together to make it happen.

Thank you for supporting music in the South Georgian Bay area.
