“Music for the Future”
~EMEF 2020 Fundraising Initiative Theme~
We are happy to announce our 2020 fundraising theme: Music for the Future. As we look towards the year ahead, we set our sights to the stars and are aiming even higher for our fundraising goals! EMEF aims to provide bright futures to all students of music in need. When students have the chance to explore music education, follow their passions, and shoot for the stars, the future is limitless.
At the Encore Music Education Foundation, Inc., we aim to use creative and unique initiatives to increase our capacity to fund and support musical talents and programs everywhere. Please read below for more information on our current initiatives.
Encore Students Raise Money for EMEF Through Benefit Concerts!
This Spring, longtime Encore student, Katie Laurence, dedicated her National Honors Society Service Project to the Foundation! Katie has taken voice, music theory, and more at Encore along with her family for years, and has grown to have a fierce love of music and all it has offered her. To give back, Katie decided that she would like to hold a benefit concert, to raise enough money to support one student in need’s music education for a whole semester at Encore Music Academy and Recording Studios!
Katie met that goal through her enormous efforts, with help from volunteers, family, and friends. We are forever grateful to Katie’s commitment to access to music education for all, and are so proud of her! Check out her speech here:
This Fall, another longtime Encore student, Bableen Gill, used her 8th Grade Capstone Project at the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School to raise money for EMEF through a talent show! We are so grateful to Bableen for thinking of us, and raising money for students in need.
Pawtucket Red Sox Performance Initiative
Encore’s very own recording ensemble, the EnHarmonix, performed two songs and the national anthem at a Summer Pawtucket Red Sox game! It was “Broadway Night” at the ball park, and in honor of that, the EnHarmonix performed two Broadway-themed songs. A percentage of proceeds from tickets bought went towards the Foundation, to support scholarships for music students in need!
Check out the Encore EnHarmonix singing the National Anthem at McCoy Stadium!
