Four inner-city schools in Surrey will be home to Sarah McLachlan School of Music programs within the next three years.

Sarah McLachlan is scheduled to appear at the Surrey Arts Centre on Sept. 22 from 6-8:30 p.m. to announce the creation of the programs in the city.

The education will be tailored for students from homes where the opportunity to participate in finer music studies is unavailable because of a lack of financial means.

While the programs won’t be up until 2018, organizers are hoping to get an office up and running as soon as possible.

That will require $70,000 in seed money, which they hope to raise from donations.

The Surrey Board of Trade is hosting McLachlan’s visit next month.

“Sarah McLachlan School of Music will give our at-risk youth reachable goals, realistic hopeful pathways, engaging school and community settings, and will change their expectations for their future,” said Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade.

Businesses can register by calling Deanna at the Surrey Board of Trade at 604-581-7130 or by emailing her at info@businessinsurrey.com

Only registered guests will be allowed into the reception.
