The Hamilton Music Collective: Jazz uniting the community

Check out this website of my sister-in-law's, Astrid Hepner is using music and her background in jazz as a tool to unite the community of Hamilton Ontario. My brother also features prominently in this work. Most interesting to note is her creation of the "An Instrument for Every Child," program that strives to bring music and professional musicans to school classrooms and instruments into the hands of city children. "Jazz in the Hubs," is a great example of that and can also been seen on their website.
