Introduction to this Year’s Practice Project: Raising money to send piano music to Albania!

« All Events

March 4, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Come and learn about this year’s practice project!  Students will find sponsors to donate a few pennies for every minute that they practice for two months.  But these pennies will add up so that every student may be able to help to make our world a better place through practicing!  This year, we are teaming up with residents of Newburyport, Bettina and David Turner.  Bettina is a wonderful musician and with her husband has spent much time living and working in Albania.  They befriended a young, talented Albanian conductor and composer, Alban Dhamo and learned that there is no published music in all of Albania.  The only printed music available is found in libraries and photocopied.  We will raise money to purchase suitcases and pay the airline fee for extra baggage so that Bettina and her husband David can carry suitcases filled with piano music to the music school where Alban’s wife Erinda teaches piano.  Come and learn about Alban, Erinda, Albania and why this situation exists and how we can help give the gift of music to others. Thank you to student Theo Roberts and family for opening up their home for this special presentation.
