Our many thanks go to our outside funding sources….
Saskatchewan Music Educators’ Association
The SMEA generously approved us for a total of $2750 towards the upcoming music conference. We are VERY grateful for this contribution which will help us bring in great musicians for our students to work with at the conference.
The potential to receive funding from the SMEA is just one good reason to spend the $30-$50 to become a member!
St. John’s Music
St. John’s Music will be the Jam Session sponsor. They will be supplying the sound system and equipment needed for jamming as an in-kind donation for the event!
Saskatchewan Band Association
The SBA has generously approved us for $700 towards the upcoming conference. This grant will be used to help with the conference operating expenses.
As of today, Cameco has joined our sponsorship partners with a generous gift of $2000 towards the conference expenses.
In total, the Resonate planning team has now raised $10,450 in revenue from outside sources towards this year’s event. We are extremely thankful to these sponsors for seeing the value for our students in this event and wanting to be a part of making it happen through their generous contributions!
Many thanks to one of our primary teachers who forwarded these links to me on using body percussion with primary grades music students.
