Classics 4 Kids Virtual Soiree & Fundraiser
Classics 4 Kids presents a virtual fundraiser to support their new online arts education programming for the 20-21 school year. Learn.Create.Connect was designed to support teachers by bringing live music directly into the virtual classroom during the COVID-19 pandemic. “The pandemic has required significant changes to San Diego County’s public education systems, creating even more barriers to exposing students in low-income elementary schools to the benefits of music education. We are adapting our programming to continue promoting an arts-rich environment to the schoolchildren that need it the most”, said Kiran Shelat, Executive Director of Classics 4 Kids. Over 50 teachers in San Diego County have already registered to receive a virtual Meet & Greet from a Classics 4 Kids educator, with many more requests coming in daily as virtual programming is launched. Classics 4 Kids is currently fundraising to sustain this program for as long as public schools are engaged in distance learning. Arts nonprofits currently need public support more than ever due to the rapidly changing economic landscape of COVID-19. Pre-registered donors receive a bottle of wine, hand-made wine bag, and admission.
