Your donation helps keep Euterpe at the forefront of providing LIVE, high-calibre performances of quality music, free of charge, for children and others who might not be exposed to these life-enhancing opportunities. At present, 100% of all funds received are dedicated to Euterpe’s performance initiatives. Euterpe targets those in need, including children in the public-school system, care facilities, such as the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), retirement homes, and a variety of community outreach programs. Your support encourages these important initiatives.
Your donation keeps Euterpe at the forefront of restoring our essential connection to the musical forms of classical, jazz and related styles. Most children listen to popular forms through a piece of technology, and the vast majority of children have not been exposed to classical, jazz and related styles. Yet these musical forms are known to provide inestimable benefits for the young developing mind and are known to have tremendous health and other benefits for people of all ages, throughout one’s life.
In Canada, music in the public-school system, for example, is considered to be a frill, to be dispensable. Children have the right to be nurtured by this music, and to have the chance to reap the life-enhancing benefits that this music is known to provide. Children, no matter the demographic, who experience a live performance by the world-class Euterpe performers want to hear more of this music. These rich and lasting musical experiences plant the seed, and lead to many of the children to play a musical instrument, learn music, sing in a choir, play in a band, and hear more of this music performed at this level, thereby building audiences of the future.
