It was certainly something special; something we had never done before, something we were honoured to do, and something we can hopefully do again! Last night, The Crossing had the extreme pleasure to partner up with the National Music Center (NMC) to promote and celebrate the importance of Canadian music!
It was a Stampede party like no other! Mountain and river views, amazing food by our friends at The Hyatt Regency Calgary as well as our excellent in house culinary team, and of course, the music! Canadian icons Jim Cuddy, Buffy Sainte-Marie, and Paul Brandt rocked the huge party tent and showed that Canadian musicians are a talented, proud, and diverse force to be reckoned with! The party helped to raise awareness and support for NMC and their new home which “gives Canada a place that amplifies the love, sharing and understanding of music.”
NMC, based in Calgary, is currently in the midst of constructing a state of the art facility which will include an interactive museum, concert hall and recording spaces, educational programming, live music and a mind blowing instrument collection, just to name a few! This new home will allow Canadians to celebrate our musical culture and heritage, and showcase the diversity and importance our country has played in music’s history. To learn more about NMC and their current projects, or to inquire about how to can show your support, please visit them at www.nmc.ca .
Music is art, it is comfort and joy, it helps ease pain and brighten a day. Music is memories, music is the future. We are proud to work with and support the National Music Center to help build a home to share the amazing gift of music with all of Canada!
