We Need Your Help During the Coronavirus Pandemic

It is a scary time to call a community together, however, this is what we do in a time of crisis. The unknown is fearful for many of us, but in the midst of it all our mission remains and there is still work to be
done. If we are unable to receive the funds needed to keep our programs operating virtually during this pandemic, we will fail those we serve.

Partnering to Provide String Music Education to all youth

Pippa and Stephen team up with Ella and Leila (suitably socially distanced, of course!) and the 4 kids make music together for anyone passing by.

Pippa and Stephen have been playing loads and we’ve had a lot of fun making and listening to music. I think you have heard about our weekly Thursday evening porch concerts.
