Montreal, September 6, 2018- The Linda and Sheldon Kagan Music Collection continues to be a hit with Vanier College students one year after it was officially inaugurated. On September 6th 2017 the extensive collection of albums, CDs, books, music tapes and music memorabilia was inaugurated on the 5th floor of Vanier College’s Learning Commons/Library.
Any Vanier College student can borrow the albums and CDs and listen to them thereby
allowing them to enjoy a wide variety of popular music and dance hits from the 1940s until today as well as more obscure artists and jazz, classical and world music that they may have never otherwise experienced.
“It is wonderful to see that the Linda and Sheldon Kagan Music Collection has proved to be popular not only with our students enrolled in Vanier’s 5 music programs but with all students at the College. Once again I want to thank Sheldon and Linda for their generous donation and for giving these musical treasures to Vanier,” said John McMahon, Vanier College’s Director General.
Sheldon Kagan has provided entertainment for weddings, corporate and special events since 1965. Over 5 decades Sheldon Kagan International produced over 75 major concerts bringing to Montreal artists such as Dionne Warwick, The Commodores, Miles Davis, George Benson, Ravi Shankar, Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Krupa, Glenn Miller Orchestra, Duke Ellington Orchestra, Buddy Rich and many more.
“I am so pleased to know that my music library, sound equipment and music memorabilia is being enjoyed by Vanier students and I hope that will remain the case for years to come,” said Sheldon Kagan.
