Celebrate the role that music plays in bringing us together and lifting spirits, while also leaving your mark on Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre (NMC), and music in Canada.
The Legacy Vinyl Campaign gives Canadians an opportunity to share their favourite lyric, song, or memory through the purchase of a personally inscribed 7-inch or 12-inch vinyl record, which will find a place on the walls of Studio Bell for a duration of 10 years.
By donating to the Legacy Vinyl Campaign, you can support the sustainability and vibrancy of NMC as we prepare for a safe and gradual reopening. Help us continue to work towards preserving, celebrating, and developing Canada’s music legacy.
