Description

The Kamloops Symphony Music School is presenting a student showcase on Friday, June 21 at 7:30 pm in the Kamloops United Church. This concert is a fundraiser for the Kamloops Symphony Music School’s Peter Collins Memorial Fund, which provides an annual bursary to one or more students each year who may not otherwise be able to access music lessons.

This performance will highlight several of the school’s most advanced students, including some who have followed in Peter’s footsteps and gone on to post-secondary music training. They will be performing solos, duets, and in small groups, on a range of different instruments including clarinet, violin, cello, voice, and piano.

Born and raised in Kamloops, Peter Collins became well-known in the arts community as a very talented singer and musician. He started singing at a very young age, and although his tastes shifted from the heavy metal that he favoured in high school to the beautiful arias and operatic pieces that he became known for as an adult, music had been in his blood since birth. He took his love of music and turned it into a new career when he returned to Kamloops and became a music teacher and voice coach in 2008. Peter loved teaching voice and guitar students at KISSM and at the Kamloops Symphony Music School, and would always brag about how well each student was doing each week. Whenever he encountered a student who struggled to make lessons happen financially, he would do whatever he could to help them out. He knew what it was like to love music so much and to struggle to learn the craft, and he wanted to help any willing student to make their dreams happen. And so, when Peter passed away, the Peter Collins Memorial Fund was born to provide bursaries to help other struggling and deserving youth be able to pursue their passion for music like he did.
