First announced in December 2020, Kinaxis InConcert, created in partnership with the Canadian Live Music Association (CLMA), unites the community and is designed to give back to the hard-hit music industry with a series of concerts live-streamed via stages across Canada. Ongoing from January to June 2021, the series is designed to celebrate artists, support venues, connect with music fans and thank all those in the supply chain ecosystem for their hard work during COVID-19.
"The Kinaxis culture is anchored in the belief that people matter here, and that extends to enriching the mind, body and soul of both our employees and their communities," said John Sicard, CEO, Kinaxis. "The one thing that unites us all is the pursuit of joy—and for many people, music can be a life-changing source of that joy. This series is a way for us to give back to our employees, customers and partners, who have worked incredibly hard over the last year to keep supply chains moving, while supporting the artists and venues who have been hit hard. So far, we've seen a great response as people enjoy connecting with a diverse set of local artists, and we're excited to see that grow as the series continues."
Kinaxis InConcert features an impressive lineup of Canadian musical artists performing from local venues across the country and covering a wide range of genres – soul, pop, hip hop, punk, jazz, folk – and more. To date, the program has successfully featured performances by string quartet Microcosmos at The Fox Cabaret, Jonny Moonbeam and Sol James at the Good Will Social Club, Lucette at Black Dog Freehouse, as well as a livestream of Electric Love's Frosted Beats festival for thousands of people across the globe.
"We are thrilled to have partnered with Kinaxis on such an important initiative to support Canada's live music community," said Erin Benjamin, CLMA president and CEO. "The program has been well-received in the music community and, in our first few concerts, we saw thousands coming together to celebrate and support our artists and venues. We thank Kinaxis for their support and look forward to continuing to connect with music fans throughout the rest of the program."
