Annual Report

2017-2018

Dear

Friends and Supporters

We believe music changes lives. We believe music heals. We believe music brings people together and builds community. We believe we are one when we are making music. Thank you for helping us inspire younger children through song and dance. We couldn't do it without you.

We've had the greatest year serving more children than ever before thanks to generous supporters like you. Our year started with a wonderful 80th birthday celebration for our friend Vey Spin. Instead of gifts, Vey asked all his friends and family members to make a donation to our Foundation. His celebration of life planned by Christine Spin gave us a chance to start the school year with enthusiasm and it helped us reach more children.

Hurricane Harvey devastated many of the communities we serve. We were extremely touched to see how our community gathered together to help our neighbors in great need. Our Music Together® colleagues and friends from all over the world sent in donations. Thanks to many generous donations, we were able to provide basic immediate needs (diapers, cleaning supplies, formula, underwear, clothes, etc.) to families in desperate need. The music studio of Prelude Music Classes Turned into a donation site. We were amazed by the amount of donations and volunteers we sorted and delivered all of the donations. 

The generosity that started our fiscal year continued throughout the year. We will forever remember the Uncle Gerry concert. with Denis Dignan, Ken Guilmartin (founder of Music Together), and Lyn Ransom. We were grateful to have co=chairs for the raffle: Hollly Radom and Nicole Katz. Thanks to our Board of Directors and you, we had our best year to date.

With grateful hearts,
