Scholarship beneficiary to play music festival

Recent grad Colin Gronert (BMus 2023) is one of the featured performers this weekend during the Greenway Jam. The Kingsville Music Festival runs Friday to Sunday, Aug. 11 to 13, in Mettawas Park on the Lake Erie shore.

Gronert, a jazz saxophonist, will take to the Grovedale Stage at noon Saturday. Gronert is one of two 2023 recipients of the Music and Arts for Youth (MAY) Fund scholarship supporting education in the arts. He will begin master’s studies this fall.

The other beneficiary is Abbey MacLeod, who is heading into the UWindsor visual arts and the built environment program.

Sheri Lowrie, recruitment and outreach co-ordinator for the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and a member of the Kingsville Music Society board, says the festival promises a diverse line-up of talent celebrating the beauty of music and the joy of community.

“Grab your friends, bring your dancing shoes and a lawn chair, and immerse yourself in the unparalleled magic of the Greenway Jam,” she says.
