Our yearly donation to the Decidedly Jazz Danceworks Children's Bursary Program allows a boy from Connaught School to attend a summer dance camp.
The Chris Reimer Legacy cash award is given to one promising music student who completes the Conservatory Summer Jazz Workshop at the Mount Royal University Conservatory, with the aim of encouraging them to continue their music career.
With your help, we have been able to continue to support arts training for youth in the communities in which Chris played, trained, studied and grew to be a musician who had some remarkable achievements in his too-short life. It is our hope that his spirit may live on in the city of Calgary and beyond, through the support we will continue to give towards arts training.
Every small donation helps us continue to fund our activities. In addition to the music and dance streams, we will also use our Legacy Funds towards the production of some of Chris' unreleased compositions. After five years of work, we're happy to announce that Chris Reimer's full-length album of ambient compositions, Hello People, will be released on April 19, 2018.
