Whole Note is a new community-based music program that assists aspiring youth musicians who face financial barriers to fulfill their passion and potential.
Update on Whole Note 2020/2021
Unfortunately, the Kamloops Music Collective has had to make the difficult decision to suspend the Whole Note program as a response to the financial impact of the pandemic. We hope to be able to offer this program again next fall.
While we are not offering our traditional Whole Note program we do have a number of opportunities for restricted income families available this fall.
Whole Note is a comprehensive program that provides restricted-income youth with a wide range of musical experiences. The program's goals are to empower youth through music by offering free private lessons, mentorship, admission to the Kamloops Interior Summer School of Music and other performance opportunities.
We're pleased to be working with generous community partners and sponsors committed to supporting youth accepted into the program. Whole Note applications are accepted from Kamloops students in Grades 6 through 11 and the intake happens in the Fall each year.
Youth who participate in the program are also encouraged to share their love of music and the knowledge they gain through the program with others in the community.
