Dear Friends,

We are just a few thousand dollars short of reaching our fundraising goal for 2019. Could you help us?

We are a small team, trying to do a lot. Every donation, small or large, helps extend our efforts and goes directly to the programs we offer — our concert series dedicated to the music of BC composers; the Pentland Awards program recognizing extraordinary contributions to Canadian music across the province; our signature education programs — the R. Murray Schafer Composer in the Classroom program, and the Jean Coulthard String Quartet Readings.

If you haven’t had a chance to donate to the Canadian Music Centre in BC yet this year, please take this moment to make your contribution online, or call Dave McLaughlin, our friendly Operations Manager, at 604-734-4622 x102 or Toll-Free at 1 (844) 416-8742‬ and he’ll gladly take your donation over the phone. (We remain open until Friday, Dec 20 at 1pm, then close for the holidays.)

Your donations also help support our Centrepulse Events listings that help promote all concerts of Canadian music in the province; and our Barbara Pentland free public lending library of 24,000 scores. And they help make our Murray Adaskin Salon available at heavily subsidized rates to composers and our Community Partners.

Please give what you can. Like you, we believe in the power of music to transform lives, engage audiences, foster creativity and wellness throughout the province of BC.

Thank you for your support of the Canadian Music Centre in BC. And Very Best Wishes for the Happiest of Holidays during the Winter Solstice and the corresponding Festivals of Light that mark the occasion — from Sean, Dave, and Jordan; our volunteers Bill and Greg, who keep building our Digital Archive documenting the history of Canadian music in BC; and our Theatre Attendants, Heather, Robert, Ian, Jessica, and Alex, who keep our space hopping on evenings and weekends.

And hopes from all of us, including our BC Advisory Council, and the entire team at CMC Canada, for a Healthy, Creative, and Successful Year for the entire new music family in 2020!
