A Parent's Perspective: Why YOU should attend Taste of Midwest Young Artists


Dear friends of MYA,

My name is Sarah Alter, and I am the proud parent of an MYA student and member of the Board of Directors.


If you haven’t bought your tickets yet… don’t miss out on an amazing new concert and fund raising event : the Taste of Midwest Young Artists on March 4th!


As all in our family know, our Gala has been the cornerstone of our fundraising activities over the years and will continue to be so thanks to the successful leadership of Cathy Popp and many other parents. Now we need to explore ways to supplement our fundraising activities so that we can scale the magic and musical mission of MYA!


This great new opportunity is thanks to the partnership of Mesirow Financial and is truly unique in that 100% of the proceeds will go to MYA…again thanks to their generosity.


Details are as follows:


Date- March 4th
Time- 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Location- Mesirow Financial Headquarters: 353 N. Clark St, Chicago, IL
Entertainment- This is a sampling of all our great groups-vocal,orchestral, jazz and will even include specially composed music by grammy award winning composer Gary Fry in honor of this great new event and Chicago’s Big Birthday!
Tickets- only $100 each

How can you help?


Invite new families or potential supporters to join you. If you work downtown, use this as a great way to entertain team members, co-workers, or clients. We would love to expose new families and new business partners to the magic of MYA in hopes that they too want to help support our vision to grow.

For more details and to purchase tickets, please follow THIS LINK today; seats are limited!

Look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,

Sarah

MYA is kicking off our Music at the Fort Recital series next weekend with the Avalon String Quartet, a professional quartet in residence at Northern Illinois University.  We are thankful for sponsorship of this series this year by Baytree Bank in Lake Forest and the Highland Park Community Foundation.

These are fun, informal recitals with wine/juice & cheese receptions.  Don't miss this one or others in the series this semester:
