Roger Skinner/MusicNL Memorial Music Endowment FundMay 5, 2011
Music Newfoundland & Labrador (MusicNL) and the Memorial University of Newfoundland School of Music are proud to announce the implementation of the Roger Skinner/MusicNL Memorial Music Endowment Fund.
Each year, an award from the Endowment will provide support for MUN School of Music students in need of financial assistance. The late Roger Skinner was a drummer with the Country Ducats and a dedicated supporter of the provincial music industry who served as President of MusicNL from 2000-2002.
Following Mr. Skinner’s sudden passing in 2002, funds were raised in his honour for the purpose now being realized. It has been the wishes of Roger Skinner’s family for his legacy to be recognized in this fashion. He always held the best interests of all musicians at heart. This Endowment keeps his name and generosity alive in perpetuity.
