It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for music students at an Austin high school, but they’ll need our help with fundraising efforts to pay for their spring trip to southern California.
The trip, expected to cost around $200,000 in all, will take Akins High School guitar, orchestra, and choir students to Los Angeles. Students are paying what they can, but each will be responsible for about $1,100.
Orchestra students will meet with Larry Livingston, who’s conducted symphonies and ensembles around the world, including the Houston Symphony. Jo-Michael Scheibe will meet with the choir students; his bio lists collaborations with Elton John, the Rolling Stones, and opera singer Luciano Pavarotti.
If there is one thing that Austinites love more than technology it is our music. That holds true at Vintage IT Services as well. We have multiple musicians that work at Vintage and recognize the amazing things that music can do for a person.
These kids were given more talent than opportunity. Let’s work together to help them achieve their dreams by opening up their doors of opportunity and letting the world hear their music!
