TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR AN ENDOWED FUND
NAME OF ENDOWED FUND
Concerts Cumberland Scholarship
Concerts Cumberland was formed in 1992 to present chamber music concerts, mainly performed by Canadian musicians, in the Cumberland-Orleans area (now eastern Ottawa). Over a period of fifteen seasons, musicians such as Anton Kuerti, The St. Lawrence String Quartet, Angela Hewitt, Pascal Rogé and many others have given concerts for enthusiastic audiences. Concerts Cumberland wound up after the 2006-2007 season due to a lack of volunteers. It was decided that the remaining funds should be used to establish a scholarship to benefit music students and to aid disadvantaged children through music education. A secondary goal of the scholarship is to promote music volunteerism.
The mandate of The Leading Note Foundation is to give children from low-income communities the opportunity to learn and make music together and the chance to benefit from the individual skills and community values that are inherent in music-making. The Leading Note Foundation is the parent organization of both the OrKidstra and KidSingers programs.
