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.
