THE NCM CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS CAMPAIGN
Your donation to the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music is a great way to support music education in the Central Vancouver Island area. As a nonprofit registered charitable organization, the Conservatory relies on support from our community to bring music lessons and programs to students of all ages. Music is the universal language! The NCM makes music education available, with your help, to everyone regardless of age or ability level. You can donate today towards a better tomorrow. We are currently fundraising to replace the NCM’s roof, windows and doors and will hopefully be able to follow through with the reno this summer with your help.
To donate, please choose between Paypal Giving Fund or CanadaHelps.org. Both platforms support and accept donations for the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music.
We are grateful for our many community partners and financial support from the City of Nanaimo, Tom Lee Music, the Province of B.C. and the Government of Canada
Monthly Calendar & NCM Quarterly Newsletter
March – May 2021 calendar – see what is happening at the NCM at a glance
The NCM is doing its part in trying to stop the spread of COVID-19. We quickly switched all our students to online lessons in March, fairly quickly, as COVID-19 started to invade our Island. We would like to thank all our families and students for their patience and understanding, and helping to make the transition go fairly smoothly. The NCM has listened very carefully to the guidelines and recommendations by Health Minister Adrian Dix, and Provincial Health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. Now that we are in Stage 2 of reopening our province, we are in the process of setting up the NCM with all the safety recommendations and guidelines in preparation for the return of Instructors and Student. There will be notices up on the walls of the NCM as guides to help you follow all the safety measures, and we ask that you not come into the building if you are feeling ill at all, as well as avoiding coming into the building earlier then your lesson time. We would like to avoid having people waiting in the back and front lobbies. We will post the reopening date when it is decided upon.
We hope everyone is staying safe, keeping their circle small, adhering to social distancing and washing their hands. As Dr. Bonnie Henry has said time and time again, be kind. We will get through this together.
We Love Our Volunteers
