These events are made possible by "Youth Take Charge," a program under the auspices of Montreal-based Jeunesses Musicales Canada to put youth in charge of producing and performing concerts of their own creative inspiration in their communities. This initiative is made possible by a Heritage Canada grant that awarded 15 communities across Canada the opportunity to present these concerts, providing acclaimed artists I Tromboni as mentors and performers.
