Ten individuals and couples have collectively matched all new donations to our organization through June 30, 2014, DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, up to $10,000!

To All of our Devoted Followers: On November 7, 8, and 9 we were able to observe students in nine of our city public schools as Brazilian guitarists Douglas Lora and João Luiz visited classrooms and assemblies at elementary, middle, and high schools. At every stop both students and teachers became a rapt audience for their amazing virtuosity and willingness to share of themselves. Most of these students had never met classical musicians in real life, let alone witness them perform for them personally. Here’s just a few of the students’ written comments about the visit: “This is a wonderful day that I will never in my life forget. I used to see playing an instrument as something that wasn’t really important, but after today that totally changed.”
