The Music Equals program reaches into underserved communities to create opportunities for music education and live music performance where it would not otherwise exist. Through the partnerships we build, we assess the unique needs of each community, develop programs that meet their individual needs, and remove as many barriers as possible to accessing them.
Since 2005, Music Equals has changed the lives of over 10,000 community members by building social connections, creating joy and empowerment, and giving them the gift of music.
Divided into three parts, the Music Equals Program brings music to the community in a number of ways:
All parts of the Music Equals Program seek to change lives by taking music to the streets and schools of Winnipeg because we believe that music belongs to everyone.DONATE TODAY
Near the end of every academic year, we celebrate our students’ achievements at the Music Equals Showcase Concert held at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People.
The concert invites students participating in the Music Equals program to perform on a real stage for a live audience with their peers.
We celebrate their journeys learning fiddle, violin, ukulele, choral, musical theatre, keyboards, and DJ as they perform some of their favourite pieces, followed by a pizza reception.
