It’s All Happening!

This week the Center opens the doors to our first private student; next week the Summer String Academy at the Center welcomes its inaugural scholars; and in July a gaggle of rising 1st-3rd graders will join us for three days of singing, moving , friendship and snacks! All of this on its own is a beautiful thing, but what makes it really special is that none of the families enrolled in our summer programs will pay one dime of tuition for any of it! By the time July is over we will have provided well over 100 collective hours of tuition-free instruction to students from our neighborhoods. This is a commitment that the Sounds of Illinois Community Music Center has made to our community because we believe in eliminating barriers to a great music education. And we believe in the transformative power of music to an individuals and their community.

But, this means that we have to rely on the kindness of friends and neighbors to come forward and help the Center and its students by making donations that will help us to pay faculty, purchase music, print programs, make insurance payments, and cover all the other big and little things that come along in the life of a Community Music Center. It’s not always easy to ask for help, but I come to you with hat in hand, inviting you to play an important role in the life of the your community music center by making a donation of any size so that more people can reap the benefits of a tuition-free music education.

To make a donation to the Sounds of Illinois Community Music Center, visit our PayPal Giving Fund page. On behalf of all who will benefit from your generosity, I offer a heart felt THANK YOU!
