Newsletter February 2

This week we had the tremendous honour of announcing London will be the host city for the 2019 JUNO Awards and JUNO Week.  

From March 11-17, 2019 our city will host countless events celebrating music, art, culture and our rich history.

We have been working toward this for a long time. London is a music city. London is on.

This is largest culture event in the country. I am so proud of everyone who has worked tirelessly on making this a reality and I am very much looking forward to the next year.

We have the JUNO Awards, we have JUNO week, but London will truly make this a year long celebration, highlighting our fantastic homegrown talent and supporting growth and innovation through the arts.

As we celebrate the best in Canadian music, we want to inspire the next generation and put instruments in the hands of the children who need them most.

MusiCounts is a music education charity focused on doing just that. Over the last 20 years, MusiCounts has awarded over $10-million worth of instruments from coast to coast to coast, and now it's our turn in London to help them get to the next level. 

We've now taken on that challenge to help music counts raise more funds here in London and southwestern Ontario. Three venues; London Music Hall, Centennial Hall and Budweiser Gardens, will donate $1 from every concert ticket for every new show that goes on sale – between Monday’s announcement until the 2019 JUNO Awards in March 17.  

For more information on MusiCounts programs and the impact they make please click here.

Sincerely,
