It is with great pleasure and honor for me to announce that P.A.T.H. recently made a gift to  E.L.M. (Enriching Lives Through Music) of $1K.    This was made possible via P.A.T.H.’s fundraising efforts from the February 1- May 30th, 2017 ANIMALIA  MUSICALE : A Chorus of Critters exhibit that took place in the Redwood Foyer of the Marin Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, San Rafael, CA. 

This special fundraising event for E.L.M. would not have been possible without the assistance of the amazing Marin Center staff, in particular: Gabriella Calicchio, Charlie Barboni, Libby Garrison, Ellen Campbell and Wendy Goldberg. Thank you for appreciating and having faith in the artwork, and for providing this prestigious venue for the Spring 2017 season when (and where) so many other worthwhile cultural, music and theatrical events took place.  

Some E.L.M. highlights:

ELM was recently selected to receive a $30K grant from Carnegie Hall's Play USA. ELM joins this network that supports organizations across the country that offer instrumental music education programs to low-income and underserved K–12 students. This grant will fund E.L.M.’s new brass and wind instrument program for students at Venetia Valley School in San Rafael.

One of ELM's 8th grade violinists (see pics) was chosen to participate in the National Take A Stand Festival in LA.

Nine ELM students attended Cazadero Music Camp on full scholarships.
