Announcing the launch of Bandwagon 2! Bandwagon is the world’s first mobile recording studio designed specifically for music therapists. This new unit will support music therapy programs across the province by traveling to various institutions for six-week residencies.
The original Bandwagon resides permanently in BC Children’s Hospital.
Bandwagon 2 is already in motion, and the first year of residencies have already been confirmed.
The Bandwagon project is funded by the annual Music Therapy Ride. Stay tuned for details on the 2013 ride, to be announced next week.
