Support The Peter Collins Memorial Fund

The Kamloops Symphony Music School and the family of Peter Collins, with support from friends, family and community, are proud to have established a fund that will provide an annual bursary for one or more students who may not otherwise be able to access music lessons, and an annual scholarship for a student from the Thompson Nicola Regional District who is studying music in university.

Peter Collins started singing at a very young age and turned his love of music into a new career, becoming a music teacher and voice coach in 2008. Whenever Peter 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. When Peter passed away the Peter Collins Memorial Fund was established to continue his legacy of helping struggling and deserving youth be able to pursue their passion for music like he did.

Your generous gift will help provide music lessons to a young, budding musician with the drive and desire to learn more, that lacks the financial resources to make their dream a reality.
