About Us

We are a non-profit organization, 501(c)(3) Public Charity EIN# 74-3247617, dedicated to developing and sponsoring children’s musical talents through active involvement in community services. By engaging our young musicians in these community services, we aim to foster our children’s recognition and acceptance of such common social values as sharing, teamwork, and striving for excellence.

What we do

Our scheduled annual programs include two concerts around Memorial Day and the Christmas Holiday Season, and a minimum of four community service events at community centers, retirement homes, schools and hospitals.
