Music Inspires! 1st Annual Fabulous Fundraiser
September 27, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+0
Classical Kids Live!, the Oistrach Symphony Orchestra and Chicago Opera Theater invite you to celebrate Vivaldi, Venice and Violins at the first annual Music Inspires! Fabulous Fundraiser supporting local arts-educational outreach programming that benefits underserved Chicago public elementary school children.
Music Inspires! is a week-long, elementary school special project collaboration between Classical Kids Live!, the Oistrach Symphony Orchestra and Chicago Opera Theater designed to expose economically under privileged children to the joys of classical music and the extraordinary lives of the great classical music composers. We believe that arts-education can inspire a personal excellence in children that will lead to greater achievement in life. And we are committed to growing the important and ongoing presentation of Music Inspires! at Chicago Public Schools. But we need your help…
The Chicago school district has endured extreme budget cuts in light of the recent economic situation and general trends in educational funding. 77% of its 427,000 students live below the poverty line and must rely on alternative art programming provided free through collaboration with external arts partners to ensure that students can benefit from arts education. Music Inspires! serves to help fill the gap in offering free music education programming that builds self-confidence, provides positive development, and creates enrichment opportunities for many at-risk Chicago students.
That is why we are asking for your attendance at our Music Inspires! Fabulous Fundraiser. It is with your invaluable support that we will be able to continue this inspiring arts, culture, and music education outreach program. Won’t you help?
Please RSVP either by emailing Natalie Berg, Classical Kids Music Education board member, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Paul Pement, Classical Kids Music Education Executive & Artistic Director, at (773) 828-4448. Or, if you are unable to attend, you may also donate online to this very worthy cause
We’re grateful for your support!
