Starting March 17th in Stouffville, Ontario, over 400 musicians will be getting together to set the world record for longest continuous music performance. It’ll be performed for 24 hours a day in The Earl at Whitchurch until the record is set.
The benefit was headed by Kevin Ker of Epidemic Music Group. As reported by Alan Cross, charities involved are “Sick Kids, Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research, Markham Stouffville Hospital, Evergreen Hospice, The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjac Fund, Artscan Circle and many more.”
Musicians getting together to help one of Canada’s most beloved music figures in history is a beautiful thing, and this is something that Canadians can be excited about.
