Student Showcase Concert Raising Money For Peter Collins Memorial Fund

Student Showcase Concert Raising Money For Peter Collins Memorial Fund

June 11, 2021 at 8:51 am  Entertainment, Kamloops, Music, The Arts

KAMLOOPS, B.C. ­– The Kamloops Symphony Music School is showcasing several of their senior students in a virtual recital which will be presented via the KSO’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/c/kamloopssymphonyorchestra) on Sunday, June 20 at 2:00 pm. The fund provides the money for a bursary to help struggling youth be able to take music lessons and an annual scholarship for a student from the Thompson Nicola Regional District who is studying music in university.

Peter Collins started singing at a very young age and turned his love of music into a new career, becoming a music teacher and voice coach in 2008. Whenever Peter encountered a student who struggled to make lessons happen financially, he would do whatever he could to help them out. He knew what it was like to love music so much and to struggle to learn the craft, and he wanted to help any willing student to make their dreams happen. When Peter passed away the Peter Collins Memorial Fund was established to continue his legacy of helping struggling and deserving youth be able to pursue their passion for music like he did.

This student showcase performance will highlight several of the school’s most advanced students, including some who are following in Peter’s footsteps and are about to begin post-secondary music training. Each student will record their performance in isolation, with the individual videos being combined into a single virtual recital which will be premiered on the Symphony’s YouTube channel. During the premiere the video will play out in real time, emulating a live performance, and viewers are invited to join in the live chat. Following the conclusion of the premiere the performance will still be available to view.

The performance is being presented free of charge, and viewers are invited to donate to the Peter Collins Memorial Fund, which can be done by calling the KSO office at 250-372-5000 or on the Kamloops Symphony Music School site at www.kamloopssymphonymusicschool.com.
