SAVE THE DATES!
Wednesdays, June 17 – August 19 2020
In 2019 the average attendance each week was 700 people! Our biggest show had over 1,000 attendees!!
As a result of your amazing support, we raised $12,000 from the 10 shows this summer!
The funds raised will be given to the music programs at: Collingwood Collegiate Institute, Jean Vanier Catholic High School, Stayner Collegiate Institute, Georgian Bay Secondary, St. Mary’s Elementary School, Admiral Elementary School and Thornbury Elementary School.
Jazz and Blues Live at the Station 2019 was brought to you by South Georgian Bay Music Foundation and supported by our major sponsors: Town of Collingwood, Balmoral Village Community, Collingwood Hyundai, The Shipyards and Life by the Water, Stone Project Management Ltd, Side Launch Brewing Company and Collingwood Downtown BIA.
The 10 concerts would not have been FREE to the public, were it not for our sponsors – THANK YOU!
Thank you to CHS Productions for the excellent sound and to Harbour Street Fish Bar, Collingwood Ice Cream Truck and Press Market for the refreshing beverages, savoury snacks and delicious treats.
We would also like to extend a sincere “Thank You” to the many volunteers who helped with the production of the shows each week.
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.
