The Music BC Charitable Foundation has chosen univeristy Highlands Elementary School as their latest recipient for the ‘Adopt an Instrument” Program.
On Monday, October 4th, a presentation ceremony will take place in the school’s library celebrating the generous gift collection of new musical instruments for Burnaby’s newest elementary school.
Vancouver aritst Carly Rae Jepsen will be performing live for the students, giving them an opportunity to see and meet a local success story of just what can become of a passion and love for music.
“Musical Education benefits students in so many ways. It is proven to help the growth of young minds, can provide an outlet to youth, and can help teach life skills. With these instruments, we are proud to help the students of University Highlands develop these skills,” said Bob D’Eith, Executive Director of The Music BC Charitable Foundation.
The Music BC Charitable Foundation’s “Adopt an Instrument” program is dedicated to putting instruments into schools throughout the province, supplementing the existing music programs to assure that every student has access to an instrument. With University Highlands, the goal has been to assist with the starting point that students have from the first moment they step into a music classroom
