The annual report for the 2021-2022 season from La SAMS is available.
Thanks to its expertise, its ability to adapt, its extensive network of partners and the remarkable support of its philanthropic community La SAMS isreturning to pre-pandemic levels of outreach and impact, despite a lockdown from December 2021 to March 2022. More than 40,000 people are receiving the benefits of music, thanks to the 857 concerts that were offered in 14 of the 17 administrative regions of Quebec. In doing so, La SAMS offers remuneration to 180 musicians for total fees of nearly $310,000.
New concert formats are being developed this year, both in person and virtually. La SAMS continues to reach out to more and more isolated people at home, including the arrival in January 2022 of the first continuous music broadcasting channel for seniors, La SAMS.tv.
In 2022, La SAMS receives the OPUS Award Inclusion and Diversity Award - Montreal, presented by Ben Marc Diendéré, president of the Conseil des arts de Montréal.
