Earlier this morning, in celebration of International Music Day, the Université de Sherbrooke's School of Music received a very special, one of a kind gift from Jeff, his very own guitar!
As a invited dignitary to the university, Jeff came to donate his guitar in person to the faculty and give one final performance with it before passing it on to the next generation of musicians at the school. Étienne Déziel is the lucky classical guitar student at the School of Music who will use Jeff's guitar during his entire undergraduate career. He also gave a performance on the guitar during the event, and the Université de Sherbrooke got this photo of Jeff and Étienne below!
Jeff explains, "Handing over my own guitar, which I used as a student of the Montréal conservatory, is a symbolic gesture, I couldn't imagine passing it on to anyone not in the next generation of musicians...this guitar let me develop my potential and I hope that it will do the same for the student receiving it. The guitar holds a great deal of sentimental value for me. It has a number of outstanding qualities. Its high level of precision charmed me and the guitar has the gift of amplifying what the player asks of it."
Check out LaPress.ca for more news on the event and a video interview with Jeff!
La Fondation Le Support - Fondation de la Déficience Intellectuelle célèbre cette année son 25e anniversaire. La mission de la Fondation est d’amasser des fonds pour soutenir les organismes œuvrant à l’intégration et à l’amélioration de la qualité de vie des personnes présentant une déficience intellectuelle. Le Support fait la collecte de vêtements et d’articles usagés donnés par la population et dont la vente permet de financer des projets présentés par des organismes qui viennent en aide aux personnes vivant avec une déficience intellectuelle.
When Simple Plan visited Vietnam with MTV Exit, they performed at My Dinh Stadium for over 40 000 youth. The purpose of the event wasn't just to bring together everyone for a night of music, but to bring everyone together in the journey to end human trafficking and modern slavery, an issue that affects people everywhere in the world. Taking action to help improve the well-being and safety of yourself, others and your community is important. But before you take action, it’s important to know what the issues are, the signs associated with those issues and what steps you can take to initiate positive change.
Tara Dermott, Head of Development at MTVExit, recently wrote a guest column in The Guardian on the importance of both awareness and action, and how Simple Plan helped bring awareness of the realities of human trafficking to local, regional and global youth with their documentary.
