Limestone Music Celebration 2024: A Symphony of Learning and Performance

The Limestone Learning Foundation is honored to support the Limestone Music Celebration 2024 with a grant of $10,000. On Wednesday, February 21, 2024, at Queen’s University’s Grant and Kingston Halls, we will witness an extraordinary gathering of 400-500 secondary music students from across the Limestone District School Board. This event promises a day filled with musical enrichment, education, and a spectacular evening performance.

A Day of Musical Workshops

Students will have the unique opportunity to participate in instrument-specific workshops and clinics, led by local professional music educators and accomplished Kingston musicians. This immersive experience is designed to deepen their musical skills, foster collaboration, and enhance their appreciation for diverse musical genres and techniques.

Promoting Diversity and Inclusion Through Music

In line with our commitment to inclusivity and representation, the Limestone Music Celebration focuses on a repertoire that reflects a wide array of voices. Works by Black composers, women, and Indigenous artists have been prioritized to ensure a rich, varied musical experience that resonates with all participants. This initiative is a step towards decolonizing our music rooms and departments, making sure every student sees themselves in the music they learn and perform.

An Inspiring Composition

The event will feature a special highlight: a composition by LDSB music teacher, Tim Stiff. His work, specifically crafted for a Massed Ensemble with inclusive and uplifting lyrics, is designed to celebrate the unity and diversity music brings to our lives.

Spotlight on Creativity: Our Event Logo Student-Design LMC Logo

In the spirit of celebrating student talent and creativity, this year's Limestone Music Celebration is proud to feature a logo designed by an exceptional NDSS student. Lily Nicholls has brought her artistic vision to life in creating a logo that captures the essence of our musical gathering. Her contribution exemplifies the collaboration and talent across our schools, adding a unique and personal touch to our event. We applaud Lily's dedication and creativity in representing the Limestone Music Celebration to the community.

Our Vision

The Limestone Music Celebration 2024 embodies the Limestone Learning Foundation's vision of making arts education a vibrant and essential part of our students' lives. By supporting this event, we aim to provide a platform where students can experience the transformative power of music beyond the classroom, in a setting that encourages collaboration, celebrates diversity, and builds community.

We are proud to be part of this momentous occasion and look forward to the music and memories that will be created.
