Forget Black Friday - November 27 is Giving Tuesday!

Posted on Tuesday, November 20, 2012


You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what about Giving Tuesday?

Kaufman Center is participating in the first annual #GivingTuesday on November 27, 2012. #GivingTuesday is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. You can participate by giving a gift to Kaufman Center this holiday season to help support our exceptional music education and performance programs.

Here are some gift ideas:

  • $11 buys a pack of strings for an electric guitar, as called for in Steve Reich’s “Triple Quartet” which will be performed by Face the Music and JACK Quartet this season.
  • $17 buys a pitch pipe for performing a cappella works at the SMS Winter Choral Concert on December 19.
  • $28 buys a set of violin strings for a Special Music School student in the Play-a-thon at the Union Square Barnes and Noble next spring.
  • $35 buys a box of clarinet reeds for a performance of “Nach-Ruf … ent-gleitend” by contemporary composer George Friedrich Haas by the Argento Ensemble in February at Merkin Concert Hall.
  • $40 buys Latin-style bongos, as featured in the Musica de Camara Orchestra, which will perform music from Latin America at Merkin Concert Hall on November 20.
  • $42 buys a harmon mute for a young trumpet player studying jazz at Lucy Moses School.
