Groundwork Music Project Announces Annual Fall Family FUNRAISER
Groundwork Music Project is hosting an afternoon of music and fun at Cherrywood Coffeehouse on Sunday, October 22nd from 3 to 6pm. The event will feature live music from Groundwork Music Orchestra and students, Tameca Jones, Walker Lukens, and more. The Fall Family FUNraiser will also include face painting, balloon animals, and a silent auction. Each ticket purchased will also enter attendees into a raffle with chances of winning gift certificates to several of Austin's premiere restaurants.
All proceeds from this event will go to the Groundwork Music Project, which enhances the lives of Austin's kids by providing free and low-cost music classes to more than a dozen preschools and elementary schools. Music is an essential element to the healthy development of children across a broad spectrum: emotional, cognitive, social and more. It is Groundwork Music Project's mission to ensure that music does not disappear from Austin's schools and kids' lives today.
Groundwork Music Project founder Neal Kassanoff has developed a canon of songs over many years while working with kids in Austin's schools. As Groundwork recordings and performances demonstrate, songs that reach young children can also have universal appeal. This material is diverse, playful, and ever loyal to the elements of good songwriting and musicianship.
Groundwork Music Orchestra's CD, Introducing the Groundwork Music Orchestra. This carefully crafted recording features songs co-written by Kassanoff and Ben Kweller, as well as great playing from veterans of the Austin music scene.
