Music Vigils

What are Music-Vigils ?

Music-Vigils are a gathering of a KOOL Crowd of music makers and music lovers 
moved to remember and honour the victims of prejudice and injustice through music.

Why music?  Because music is powerful.

It’s a universal language that motivates, moves and inspires people to stand up, take positive action and make change.

Music-Vigils are inclusive participation events for music makers of all ages and abilities to play together for social good, each with their part to play, and each contributing in their own way. A nationwide gathering that brings together communities through KOOL Actions and KOOL Events.

A KOOL Event for A KOOL Crowd

Hi, I’m René

Founder of The Music-Vigils Project and KLASSIC-KOOL Music,
an Activist Music Company focused on creating music for social good and supporting the incredible people on the front line of activism through music, creativity and action.

The Music-Vigils Project was inspired by the Elijah McClain story, about a sensitive young man who played the Violin, and became an innocent victim of prejudice and injustice, and the music communities instinctive and heart felt response to this event
in organising the Violin-Vigils of 2020 in his name.

In addition to supporting the public Music-Vigils that take place in many cities, we wanted to create an opportunity for music makers everywhere to participate and be involved in these important musical events.

So, I created The Music-Vigils Project, an online platform where The KOOL Crowd could come together in support, and attend Public-Vigil events in their local community, or organize House-Vigils for family and friends – and more.

How to join The Music-Vigils Project

The KOOL Crowd take KOOL Actions, and joining The Music-Vigils Project is easy:

Step 1


It’s KOOL to Care.

Caring is about wanting a better world.
Believing in hope and knowing
a better world is possible.

Caring is the first step to change.

Step 2


It’s KOOL to Act.

Stand up for what you believe in
and do something about it.
Nothing changes if we don’t act.

Get active, it’s crucial.

Step 3


It’s KOOL to Inspire

Logging actions motivates and inspires others to do the same, helping
bring about change faster.

Log your actions and be inspirational.

When you complete the three steps of your 1st KOOL Action, you join The KOOL Crowd.

It’s as easy as that.
