Fall Fundraiser Big Success!

What an amazing afternoon!  Our first fundraiser was held this past Sunday, October 30th, 2011 at the Scandinavian Community Centre in Burnaby, BC.   A good time was had by all and enough  funds were raised to begin music outreach programs in January!  We will be teaming up with Burnaby Family Life to provide music programming to young children in a number of their early childhood daycare and preschool centers.   The fundraising will also help us initiate our first music therapy project which is currently in development.

The afternoon featured performances by Catrina Centanni and Jay Juatco and Jason and the Diatonics:
