Thanks to your generosity our fundraising event on November 5, 2016, Emerald City Dinner & Auction, was a big success. The Duwamish Longhouse provided a unique setting for 60+ guests where we enjoyed a scrumptious catered meal, insightful commentary from guest speaker Sean MacLean of KING-FM on the value of music education, a performance by the ECCHO student ensemble from Washington Middle School, and spectacular entertainment by the Skyros Quartet.
We are pleased to report that we exceeded our fundraising goal, netting over $15,000 for the organization! These precious funds will support our student Summer Student Festival Tuned In! and our new in-school chamber music program, ECCHO, now active at five local middle and high schools. Through this innovative program, professional chamber musicians coach small ensembles of students and guide them through a series of concepts over 10 sessions per semester.
We hope you will spread the word to others about the exciting musical experiences we offer for young people. If you are interested in becoming involved as a volunteer or have interest in serving on our board of directors, we would love to talk with you.
