This all began last year with a few informal events that turned into huge successes. Upward Notes was featured on Fox News, PEOPLE magazine, the Herald-Tribune, and many online news blogs after performing for a local animal shelter.
During this coming season, we will be providing one free concert each month to non-profits in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. We have already planned events with children, Dementia patients, Parkinson's patients, animal shelters, and addiction centers.
In the past, this has been a 100% volunteer based organization. However, we want to expand our community reach which means more venues, more concerts, more planning, and much more time. Our goal for the 17-18 season is at least 8 concerts. Each concert costs around $250 for us to provide. Your donation will go towards supplying 1-4 musicians per concert, new and creative musical arrangements for various instruments at each program, and promotional materials to help get our name into the community!
If you would like to donate for a specific concert or specific cause, we would be more than happy to make that happen!
