In sync with the scholarship news, Hudson Music is streaming video footage of a pre-show rehearsal by Peart.

Peart passed away on in January of 2020 at the age of 67 after a three-and-a-half year battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer, Glioblastoma, following the Canadian band’s final concert in Los Angeles in 2015.
