Attend concert, help young musicians go to Europe
The Summit High School instrumental music department will host its winter concert on Wednesday, Dec. 3, along with a fundraiser to help send young musicians to Europe this spring to perform and learn about music culture. The silent auction and dessert bar open at 5 p.m., followed by a concert featuring the orchestra, symphonic band and jazz ensemble at 6:30 p.m.
As you can guess, a trip to Europe is a major investment. The musicians are looking forward to the opportunity to learn, to play with the professionals accompanying them on the trip and to perform in venues that have hosted music for thousands of years.
Fundraising for this investment has taken various forms. Last spring was the Dancing and Delectables event at the Silverthorne Pavilion. This summer members worked the snack bar for another dancing event at the Dillon Amphitheatre. The students have also filmed a segment for a virtual fundraiser through causevox.com and hope that avenue will bring in more support, as well.
Families are bringing desserts for the dessert bar on Wednesday, and the silent auction has more than 30 items. Generous donations to that list include stays at Beaver Run Resort and Breckenridge Grand Vacations, gift certificates from furniture stores, boutiques, toy stores and salons, plus oil changes, airport transfers, theater tickets and rec center passes, to list a few.
The students are hoping you’ll see this event as an opportunity to support high school musicians and get things you need, like Christmas gifts and certificates for those on your list.
For more information, contact Linda Shea, director of instrumental music at Summit High School, at (970) 368-1117 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
