The love of music has led a pair of local businesses to come together in support of an exciting music initiative in the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Lethbridge.
Lucky Star Guitars and The Geomatic Attic have collaborated to fund the new Lucky Star Guitars/Geomatic Attic Digital Audio Arts Award.
The new award creates a unique opportunity for University of Lethbridge students, the end result being student-recording projects with student art elicited for album covers. Each year, 500 CD units highlighting a DAA musician will be produced and sold, with proceeds adding to the continuation of the award.
The initiative began with a guitar, donated by Lucky Star Guitars, which was raffled off in support of the award. The Geomatic Attic had visiting artists sign the guitar in advance of a raffle. To date, four guitars have been raffled in support of the award.
In addition, The Geomatic Attic and the U of L have partnered to present The Geomatic Attic U of L Concert series. Beginning February 23 with the Acoustical Sounds of Big Sugar, this series will feature outstanding live musical acts from throughout the Canadian Prairies performing in the U of L Theatre. Again, a portion of the proceeds from each concert will fund the Lucky Star Guitars/Geomatic Attic Digital Audio Arts Award.
