With the recent changes in our day to day lives, musicians have been hit really hard connecting with their fans. Not being able to get together safely to perform has decimated the live entertainment industry and the musician’s pocketbooks. Therefore the MPTF has released funding directly to musicians throughout North America to help put money back into their pockets and to give them an opportunity to share their talents safely with all of their fans and Facebook users. Many of our musicians have given so much though this pandemic and often getting nothing or very little in return. MPTF and Pricedex Software along with our in kind sponsors have come together to show their gratitude and to thank over 26 musicians from around the region for what they do every day. We have to extend a gratitude to St. John’s United Church in Brockville for providing a safe and fully equipped environment for our musicians to perform. Performances start at 8:00 pm and can be accessed by searching for the “Upper Canada Musicians” or “The Music Performance Trust Fund” Facebook Pages and clicking on the live performance link.
Due to copying restrictions, performances are only available live and will not be available for viewing after the performance has aired. The venue is currently closed to the public at this time.
