ABOUT KIDS IN CONCERT:
Kids In Concert is a not-for-profit music education organization created using the values of El Sistema in Venezuela. We offer children, irrespective of income, the opportunity to learn to play an orchestral instrument, participate in musical ensembles, and contribute to the lives of others. Founded in 2010, we've grown from a few violinists and cellists to over 60 musicians and 40 on a waitlist.
Providing a KIC experience to a child takes the work, dedication and support of many volunteers and paid musicians and staff. We are grateful to our individual donors, community foundations, and grantors. KIC kids are never charged to participate and are provided their own instrument. Our goal this Spring is to fund the equivalent of 20 students or $50,000. Can you help us?
