33035432_1555001441481444_r.jpegMazel Musical Arts  is a nonprofit organization in Weymouth, Nova Scotia.
Our mission is enriching lives through music, by providing music education resources for all ages and all music proficiency levels. 

We are a start up organization also offering individual and group instruction to the community.

On the night of August 29, 2018 our studio building suffered severe damage from a fire in the neighborhood across the road destroying one of the oldest General Stores in Canada being used as an antique store and also destroying the Electric City Archive Offices AKA the Fairmiles Building.

We are very fortunate to have survived, but cannot function as an open studio again until our building is fixed.

Please help us continue to provide a vibrant musical space for aspiring musicians and the community. 
Mazel Musical Arts  is asking for your support in order to continue functioning and contributing to the community of Weymouth and surrounding
areas. Please contact us if you would like to help by volunteering or donating.

For more information about our organization, go to Mazel Musical Arts  or visit us on Facebook  or Google Business Page .

Thank you so much for your support!

Please review our iCloud photo album of the fire and the original blue prints we obtained in 2014 from the Nova Scotia Archives from architect Dumaresq, c. 1906 as a PDF .

We are considering taking down this GoFundMe campaign, or altering it's goals, as we are currently in legal action with our insurance. It is clear that our insurance is refusing to pay for some necessary rehabilitation that is quite clearly accounted for, but what is unclear is how much will the shortfall be. We will keep posting updates here as they develop.

I am just getting back on my feet and now looking at this campaign started by one of our staff shortly after the fire. We obviously still have a lot of work to do.

Imagine the block of buildings in front of your historic heritage home burns to the ground mysteriously overnight, severely damaging your home's exterior and interior contents. You barely manage to leave your home alive and attempt to call your insurance
company by phone, only to learn that the phone lines are down. Luckily your wife is not on the premises and has access to a vehicle - able to drive to the local insurance company in person during a catastrophic claim - something that should never be expected of any person paying for insurance. While the average person is not highly skilled in insurance, you would expect that at minimum your local insurance company would answer your questions and advise you of the next steps following such a tragedy...
