Kidznotes was inspired by El Sistema, a free program based in Venezuela which provides classical music instruction for young children from highly impoverished backgrounds. Thirty-five years and 800,000 students later, El Sistema is the national jewel of Venezuela, a world-acclaimed program being emulated around the globe.
Simply put, Kidznotes changes lives through music – and that resonated with the local nonprofit fundraising organization Band Together, who have selected Kidznotes to be their 2016 Partner for Social Change!
In 2016, Band Together and Kidznotes aim to raise more than $1 million. Proceeds raised during the 2016 partnership year will be used to expand the number of students served by Kidznotes in Durham and Raleigh to 600 by the 2016-17 school year – an addition of nearly 300 students over two years to Kidznotes’ current roster. Kidznotes’ strategic plan and vision includes serving 1,000 students in Durham and Raleigh by 2020.
