Join oboist Katie Gonzalez and pianist Michael Miller as they perform works by Haydn, Saint-Saens, and more — with each piece paired with a dessert! Wine will also be served.
Katie and Michael are volunteering their talents for this recital, so all ticket proceeds will benefit The People’s Music School.
Katie is a member of The People’s Music School Associate Board, which organizes and supports friend-raising and fundraising events around Chicago to spread the word about TPMS. Members also lend their time and talent to strategic projects, as needed, throughout the year.
The funds that the Associate Board raises go towards tuition-free conservatory training for 1,000 Chicago students, whom over 90% are of color. They receive intensive music instruction from professional musicians an average 9 hours a week — all at no cost to their families. The results of this training speaks for itself: the People’s Music School boasts a 100% high school graduation and college attendance rate.
The Associate Board is just $5,000 from reaching their fundraising goal! You can support their efforts by attending Divine Pairings and making a donation to The People’s Music School at https://peoplesmusicschool.org/donate.
