Thank you to everyone who joined us for the concert and reception on March 14, 2019! It was an extraordinary evening and success. Our students performed music from Mission Impossible, The Postman with Jono Manson, Anchorman, Studio Ghibli, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and songs from Coco with Nacha Mendez. They had a wonderful time and so many audience members have sent me messages that they were simply blown away by the show, the performances and excellence, and the variety of music! An extra thank you to our staff, volunteers, parents, and both Jono Manson and Nacha Mendez for all of the heart and soul you gave to the event.
Our fundraising reception at Manitou Galleries was elegant and yummy. We enjoyed the jazz talents of Michael Burt, Jr, Milton Villarrubia, and Christopher Ishee holding down the groove while our Jazz Performance students jumped in with some impressive and swinging improvisation. The painted violins were a sight to behold and some lively bidding ensued. The limited edition guitar from Coco went to lucky winner Boris Maiorov!
Our fundraising goal for this evening’s event was $25,000 in honor of our 25th anniversary. With everything currently added in, our gross fundraising amount was $24,500. If you missed the chance to donate, and would like to jump in now to help us meet that goal, please click here!
