MusiCounts Canada 2014 Grant

On March 6, 2014, Jean Vanier CSS hosted over 40 special guests and artists to launch the 2014 campaign for MusiCounts, a national agency providing new music equipment to schools. Jean Vanier received $10,000 worth of equipment to add to the ever-expanding drum line, including a marimba and a complete set of cymbals. The drum line has grown in three years from a lunch-time curiosity to a credit course and an important part of our outreach into the greater community, participating (and winning awards!) in various parades around the greater Toronto Area.

On the launch day, our own drum line played for the assembled guests, which included 300 enthusiastic Jean Vanier students. As well we were lucky to have Juno-award-winning artists Classified and David Myles entertain the students and speak about ther own musical journey.

In sum, it was a wonderful for music at Vanier, especially for our music teachers Ms Cormier and Mr Fanning.
