Rogers Commits An Additional $20,000 to MusiCounts
The Holy Trinity Catholic School received $10,000 in concert band instruments via the MusiCounts Band Aid Program in 2017, and today they showcased the new instruments with a special performance at Rogers in Toronto. Then, Julie Adam Senior Vice President, Rogers Radio made a surprise announcement that Rogers is committing an additional $20,000 to MusiCounts. This means that with Rogers’ support, MusiCounts is able to supply even more schools across Canada with instruments, bringing the total of Rogers MusiCounts support to over $100,000 in instruments over the last several years. This will benefit thousands of children and youth for years to come. Together MusiCounts and Rogers are proud to support music education and inspire the next generation of artists, creators and music fans.
Students from Holy Trinity were also treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of Rogers radio stations including KISS 92.5, CHFI and 680 News. Be sure to check out MusiCounts’ Twitter for photos & video.
About The Holy Trinity Catholic School:
Before receiving a MusiCounts Band Aid Program instrument grant of $10,000 The Holy Trinity Catholic School did not have enough instruments for their students. Students had to share instruments and were not able to bring them home to practice. Holy Trinity was a new school amalgamated from St. Teresa & Christ The King, so the new instruments were a great tool in bringing together all students. They also have helped the school create a concert band and strings program. Holy Trinity received concert band instruments via The MusiCounts Band Aid Program such as clarinets, flutes, trumpets and saxophones.
