Danielle_painted_violin_8006578_newsletter_sized 2Join us in our annual celebration of Center Stage Strings students, alumni, faculty and guest stars for our 2015 Benefit Concert at the Colburn School’s beautiful Zipper Hall in downtown Los Angeles.  Past guest artists have included Arnold Steinhardt, James Ehnes, Lynn Harrell and Sarah Chang.  This year, we are proud to feature our very own summer camp alumna, violinist Simone Porter!  Simone has been making waves on the music scene since her Hollywood Bowl debut last summer and recent performances around the globe.  

Brian Lauritzen
The evening will be hosted by KUSC’s radio personality, Brian Lauritzen and will feature a variety of great music and performances. 

We so appreciate the outpouring of support from our CSS family in our ongoing Multiply the Music Campaign.  I am looking forward to using my Sphinx Medal of Excellence Award money soon to match the $50,000 we will raise by May 1st, so that it can double to $100,000 and help us grow to four weeks long next summer!!

We have raised about  $40,000 towards our goal.  If you or someone you know would like to contribute to help us raise a portion of the remaining $10,000, we would be so very grateful!  This money will go towards scholarships for Center Stage Strings students and towards the cost of running this high-level music camp, complete with world-class Faculty.

Musically yours,
