Huge congratulations to MWI Alumnus Alexandr (Sasha) Zelenskiy (PSS 2020) for receiving the MusiCounts Accelerate Scholarship!
The MusicCounts Accelerate Scholarships, sponsored by the RBC Emerging Artist Project, aims to help advance the careers of aspiring music professionals as they finish their post-secondary studies and launch into the industry. Each recipient receives a $5,000 financial award and an intensive mentorship experience from heavyweights in the entertainment industry, including Alysha Brilla (JUNO Award-nominated artist, songwriter and producer, session presented by Believe Music), Kathleen Reid (Agent & Managing Director, The Feldman Agency), Keziah Myers (Executive Director, ADVANCE, Canada’s Black Music Business Collective), and Matt Webb (guitarist from the JUNO Award-winning band Marianas Trench), with more to be announced soon.
Post-secondary Institutions across Canada nominate potential recipients and only seven were awarded the scholarship. We are very excited that Sasha has been named a deserving recipient of this honour.
Well-deserved Sasha. We’re so proud of you and excited for your future.
