December 1 is #GIVINGTUESDAY. Please join us in giving back.
At Kaufman Music Center we believe that music has the power to change lives. This #GIVINGTUESDAY we are so proud to share this power on the world stage. Members of our youth ensemble Face The Music have traveled to Paris to give their time and talent. They will be performing the work "Oceans Eat Cities" at the United Nations Climate Change Conference.
This trip is possible because of the generous support of people in the Kaufman Music Center community. Because of you, we are able to change lives and raise awareness through our successful music education programs. Thank you!
On this day of celebrating philanthropy, please consider joining our students' spirit of giving by making a donation. Your support can have twice the impact! A generous donor has pledged to match all new or increased gifts up to $1million.
Here is more infomation about the Paris trip:
Some of our the students in our Face The Music teen new music ensemble are traveling to Paris to participate in the United Nations Climate Change Conference by performing Neil Rolnick's “Oceans Eat Cities” and other works in various Paris venues:
Thu Dec 3, 7:30 pm: Ecole Massillon
Fri, Dec 4, 8 pm: La Maison des Océans
Mon, Dec 7, 8 pm: L'atelier de la Main d'Or
Rolnick's "Oceans Eat Cities," which combines amplified string quartet, live electronics and video by R. Luke Dubois, uses data about the cumulative effects of carbon emissions as the jumping off point for a compelling two-movement musical work.
