This week the Wasaga Beach Blues committee received a cheque for nearly $23,000 from TD Financial Group to support Stonebridge Wasaga Beach Blues’ Blues in the School’s program and Junior Jam.
Heading up both programs for this upcoming Festival is Louis Lefaive. Louis is a long-time educator, recording artist, singer, songwriter and bandleader. The program includes incorporating high school students as mentors in the schools to assist with the delivery of the curriculum, as well as making the curriculum be activity based more than lecture style.
During the Junior Jam we will have professional volunteers to perform with the student house band as guests and have them tutor the youth performers one hour prior to the concert.
The schools approached this year are Elmvale District High School, Stayner Collegiate, Birchview Dunes Public School, Worsley Public School and St. Noel Chabanel Catholic Elementary School.
Come support a new generation of musicians from our community
