Feb 12, 2013

TORONTO, ON, FEBRUARY 12, 2012 – The schools are alive with the sound of music! Today, MusiCounts announced that for the first time ever it will surpass $1,000,000 in grants awarded through their music education programs! Although there is much more work to be done to bring instruments and necessities to the music programs in Canada, the news of this year’s funding is a tremendous milestone that Canada’s music education charity associated with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) has been striving to achieve. The announcement was made by Melanie Berry, President & CEO, CARAS/The JUNO Awards and MusiCounts during a celebration held at Woodbine Jr. High School.
