The 15th annual fundraising campaign for the Jesus-Marie School of Music generated profits of $17,500 to make musical education accessible to all. Founded in 1975, the Jesus-Marie Music School is the oldest musical institution in Lévis. Since 1990, it has offered the music concentration of the Arts, Languages and Sport Program (PALS) at École Pointe-Lévy. To date, more than 10,000 students of all ages have received a varied and high quality musical education at this school. In addition, each year it welcomes about ten children entrusted by the Center de pédiatrie sociale de Lévis, to whom free lessons are offered each week.
