INSPIRING NOTES

Giving the gift of FREE MUSIC to our San Fernando Youth And Their Families

SO, WHAT?
HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED!

• Gave a FREE 3-year program with professional musicians performing Chamber Concerts to 25,000 Pre-K to Grade 5 students
• Gave a FREE After School Mentoring Program with professional musicians coaching/mentoring elementary and secondary orchestra students – about 400 young musicians! Featured story on Channel 9 & 2.
• Showcasing young musicians at Community Concerts to benefit our music education program – 100+ elementary and secondary students experienced performing for an audience!

WHAT ELSE?
ANOTHER HAPPENING….

• Carlo Ponti gave 100% of his profits from his LA Virtuosi Orchestra to 3 of our partner schools for music education.
• Connecting with our community, 350 parents and students from our (8) partner schools experience community concerts.
• L.A. Philharmonic Affiliates of San Fernando Valley under President Nancy Howards’ leadership gave (50) tickets to Toyota Youth Concerts each year to our elementary partners with school orchestras. That means 500 kids and parents got the “experience of their lifetime” adding to their exposure to classical music.

  • Gave 350 families and their kids from our partner schools classical music experiences FREE at Community Concerts held at First Presbyterian Church of Granada Hills.
  • Outreached and connected with more community organizations, businesses and individuals resulting in more support = broaden base funding promoting “sustainability” of Inspiring Notes.
  • While it is well publicized that the LA Phil’s YOLA music education targets the youth in the inner city and downtown, the San Fernando Valley youth were left out!!!
  • Inspiring Notes “unique” 3-year Music Enrichment Program was founded by 10 community volunteers who share the passion and belief that our children should be exposed to music at a tender young age. In our 10th program year we have served (23) SFV Schools – (19) elementary and (4) secondary.
  • We are a “grassroots community charity connecting music to our community. From the responses from parents, administrators, teachers and our kids.  We believe our program is HELPING “fill the gap” in music education in our public schools in the San Fernando Valley.  But thousands more kids are waiting for us!
