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.

VINESTOCK 2022

 

This year’s Vinestock music festival marked the return of this signature event for the first time since 2019 and featured an eclectic lineup of local musicians and vendors gathering at Georgian Hills Vineyards to raise money for South Georgian Bay area school music programs.

With the help of our amazing sponsors and the generosity of all guests in attendance, we raised an astounding $8300 for South Georgian Bay Music Foundation!

 

 

This year’s donation will be put towards music programs at several local secondary schools (Collingwood Collegiate Institute, Stayner Collegiate Institute, Our Lady of the Bay, & Georgian Bay Community School) as well as an incredible number of local elementary schools (St. Mary’s Catholic School, Cameron Street Public School, Connaught Public School, Notre Dame de la Huronie Catholic Elementary School, Clearview Meadows Elementary School, St. Noel Chabanel Catholic School, Worsley Elementary School, Beavercrest Community School, Beaver Valley Community School, & Georgian Bay Community School Elementary). Working alongside South Georgian Bay Music Foundation, these schools will put these funds to great use to advance music education in our local communities.

 

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.
