Music has the power to change lives. That is the belief that gave rise to the organization Make Music Matter (formerly Song for Africa). This registered charity uses music to educate and address human rights issues in struggling African nations and empower those whose lives are affected. Metalworks Institute and Make Music Matter are teaming up to produce a charitable show featuring some of the greatest local musicians, and as an event sponsor Roger R. Foisy encourages anyone interested in the cause or in a night of music to attend.
The students and faculty of Metalworks Institute, a private career college and Canada’s Elite Entertainment Arts School, are producing the July 30, A Night to Make Music Matter, event at Hugh’s Room (2261 Dundas St. W.).
All proceeds from the event will be going to Make Music Matter which is working to build operations in three locations across Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that will tackle a wide variety of developmental and human rights issues including HIV/AIDS orphans, child soldiers and individuals who are survivors of sexual violence.
