Yesterday, MusiCounts, in partnership with Republic Live (producers of Boots and Hearts and WayHome festivals), celebrated $10,000 in new musical instruments provided to Orillia Secondary School. Made possible through the generous support of MusiCounts' Band Aid Program, the donation of the instruments was celebrated by JUNO Award nominee and CCMA Award winner Tim Hicks. Hicks celebrated the announcement by performing his hits "Got a Feeling," "Young Alive & In Love."
Yesterday's presentation highlighted the ongoing and dedicated support Republic Live has given MusiCounts, Canada's music education charity associated with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS). To date, over $230,000 has been raised through the partnership to support MusiCounts' Band Aid Program.
