Music Marathon

The Music Marathon is an annual fundraising event sponsored by the Calgary branch of the Alberta Registered Music Teachers’ Association. The event’s main purpose is to raise money for scholarships and programs for ARMTA students and teachers. As well, the event showcases the benefits of taking lessons from a registered music teacher and provides students with an opportunity to share music with the community at large.

The 2018 Music Marathon will take place at The CORE Shopping Centre in downtown Calgary on Saturday, May 26, from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. During this annual event the audience, families and friends will enjoy beautiful and culturally diverse musical performances.
