Manitoba Youth to Launch Local Music Collection

Manitoba MusicManitoba youth interested in eventual careers in the music industry have been learning the ins and outs of the biz for the last few months.

Eleven local high school students participated in a series of mentor sessions, learning about touring to releasing records and publicity, through a program run by Manitoba Music and ACI Manitoba.

While the mentor sessions helped the students learn firsthand about working in the industry, they also had a chance to develop their practical skills with a marketing project. Coordinated, marketed, and promoted by the students themselves, the project includes a collection of tracks from young independent Manitoba artists, dubbed Rhythm Resurrection: Unearthing Manitoba Music.

The project will be presented on May 15 during a fee event at the Park Theatre. The lineup features rock outfit Sons of York, Brandon-based pop/rockers Until Red, and singer/songwriter Elessar Thiessen. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. and showtime is 8 p.m.
