Lots of good North Carolina fun here: NC beers, NC fish, and NC music (including some of the kids I teach!).
Via their website, here’s a little background on KidZNotes, which works with kids in some of the poorest areas of Durham:
Embarking on the second year of its three year East Durham Pilot Project, KidZNotes is an El Sistema-inspired nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that fights poverty and encourages positive decision making by instructing and engaging children in classical orchestral music. KidZNotes aims to improve children’s musical performance, to develop values that contribute to success at school and in society, and to promote children’s and families’ engagement in program and community activities.
Hope to see you there!
