MusiCounts’ mission is to ensure that every child in Canada, regardless of socio-economic circumstances or cultural background, has access to a music program. MusiCounts provides funding for school music programs though their Band Aid Grants and for community based music programs through their MusiCounts TD Community Music Grants. They also recognize dedicated music teachers through the annual MusiCounts Teacher of the Year Award. To date, MusiCounts has awarded $475,000 to music programs in Manitoba, and of that, $230,000 to 18 different music programs in Winnipeg.
Play your Part
This spring and summer, art and music come together with Play Your Part – a set of seven beautifully decorated pianos placed around the downtown for the public to play and enjoy.
Scheduled to be placed around the downtown in time for the JUNO Awards this March, each of these seven pianos was painted with a one-of-a-kind design by artists from Graffiti Art Programming. Whether you’re a musician, a performer, or just feel like adding music to your day, the pianos are there for you to play and enjoy.
“The Play Your Part piano initiative is all about engaging and activating our community to take ownership of their downtown,” says Stefano Grande, Executive Director of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ. He adds: “It’s another creative way for Winnipeggers to make use of downtown’s public spaces.”
