One of the most celebrated singer-songwriters in entertainment, the National Music Centre (NMC) is home to a new temporary exhibition honouring 2017 Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee, Sarah McLachlan.

Presented in partnership with the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), the launch coincides with the 2017 JUNO Awards, where McLachlan will be honoured during the broadcast on April 2, 2017.

The multi-platinum, award-winning performer has achieved international acclaim as a musician and philanthropist, selling more than 40 million albums worldwide.

“I’m incredibly honoured by this exhibition that features my work as a songwriter, as well as my efforts to give back and build stronger communities through music,” says McLachlan, in a statement. “Music is a gift that’s meant to be shared and I was happy to be able to loan many beloved pieces to the National Music Centre for this exhibition.”

The exhibition is located on Studio Bell’s fifth floor and features a wide selection of awards and artifacts from McLachlan, including her CP-80M electric grand piano, her Kay “Barney Kessel” electric guitar, and a Kala ukulele. Other treasures include hand-written lyric sheets, original tour books, and an outfit she wore at Lilith Fair.

Milestones: Sarah McLachlan is accessible with paid admission to Studio Bell and runs from March 29 until the fall of 2017. More information can be found at
