Musécole is a non-profit organization supporting music in schools and communities in the Eastern Townships. Its goal is to highlight local talent by hosting a fundraising concert each year, and pay forward any profits to local schools to help with the purchase of instruments or to support music-related projects. In addition to bringing together talented Townships artists, Musécole also integrates young up-and-comers in its concerts, giving them an opportunity to perform alongside professionals and gain valuable stage experience. To date, Musécole has raised over $4,200, which was used to purchase band instruments for Sherbrooke Elementary School, ukuleles for Students at Sutton Elementary School, and guitars and amps for Richmond Regional High School. Now in its third year, the organization is gearing up for its annual fall fundraiser which will be held on Saturday, Oct.20 at Centennial Theatre in Lennoxville. This year’s theme is Canadian Kitchen Party. See full story in the Wednesday, September 12 edition of The Record.
