Leon A. Brown is sponsoring a new series of live musical performances to WAG-Qaumajuq, downtown Winnipeg’s one-of-a-kind Inuit cultural art museum. Sounds of Manitoba invites a selection of local musicians to perform alongside the art of the museum’s first floor, creating a remarkable meeting of music, visual art, and culture.
“Leon A. Brown Ltd. is delighted in supporting an opportunity for Manitoba artists to perform in the great spaces of WAG-Qaumajuq,” says Jon Brown, Executive Vice President of Leon A. Brown Ltd. “Art takes many forms and continues to move us.”
The series opened on November 18 2022 with Winnipeg singer-songwriter Sierra Noble and will feature performances from Anthony OKS, Cara Luft, and Erin Proof.
“Leon A. Brown Ltd. sponsors this series in honour of our sister Ruth Anne Shnier. We offer a special thanks to promotional partner Manitoba Music.”
“Our 5 year commitment and sponsorship to Sounds of Manitoba provides an opportunity for Manitoba voices and music to be heard” says Bob Brown, President of Leon A. Brown Ltd.
