Blank Vinyl Project (President: Cheralyn Chok)
Blank Vinyl Project (BVP) is a student-run music organization located at the University of British Columbia. We are a group of students brought together by a shared love of music and a common desire to watch musicians and their music flourish on and off campus. What we have discovered is that there is an abundance of talented musicians located in and around campus that have the talent to make it far but lack the resources to take them there. Whether the end goal be performing at an open mic or headlining a show at a music venue in Vancouver, we can help. BVP is made up of a community of musicians which we continually cultivate and grow. As a volunteer team we network with other student-organizations, local businesses, industry professionals and music venues to secure resources which we then offer to our community.
