Limited tickets remain for Raise the Baton this Sunday!

Raise the Baton is this Sunday, July 14!  This fundraising party makes it possible to provide Young Artists Scholarships, free tickets for kids age 17 and under, and the summer concert series every August.  Your presence is needed!

We’re thrilled to have Maestro Brett Mitchell hosting the event this year, plus performances by six advanced Young Artists Scholarship recipients.

Emceed by local personalities Dr. Stephen Marshall and Brett Bizik, this is sure to be a fun evening, with a silent auction and delicious food and thematic drinks by Bowtie Catering!

Keeping the focus on the mission, this event highlights unique opportunities to sponsor “the elements of music”: guest artists, orchestra sections, concerts and musical works, solo parts, travel costs, venues, an instrument petting zoo for kids, and more. (It’s really expensive to move and tune a piano, for example.)
