It's Young People’s Concerts for Schools week, one of our favorite times of year!
The joy on a child's face at a concert in David Geffen Hall is truly inspiring. This short video captures how Young People's Concerts and Philharmonic Schools bring music into the lives of tens of thousands of students each year, many of whom wouldn’t otherwise have regular access to arts and music education. We need your help to do so, and it doesn't take much to provide necessary assistance to students and teachers:
$100 helps support a professional development session for classroom teachers
$75 buys journals for ten students to document their music experiences
$50 provides materials for a session for our Very Young Composers, who create music for the Orchestra to perform, as is happening this week
$25 helps underwrite the costs of instruments (like recorders and percussion boxes) for a Philharmonic Schools classroom
Please consider giving any amount, which will help nurture a lifelong love of music for students throughout New York City!
