City Strings United Benefit Concert
Last year, Old South Church, through its Music Committee, hosted a benefit concert for City Strings United (CSU) on October 28th. The event was a turning point for our non-profit, which provides cellos and cello instruction for free to over 20 school-age youths from communities around Roxbury. The concert resulted in one of the most successful fundraisers in CSU’s seven-year history! It was also a memorable performance experience for our young cellists set in beautiful Gordon Chapel. The success of the event energized us and propelled us to a new level of growth! CSU went on to receive three new grants, increase our donor base, hire a part-time bookkeeper and qualify for a second year of a major grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
We are very grateful to Old South Church and particularly to the generous members of the Music Committee. Now we look forward to our second concert at Gordon Chapel on October 27, 2019!
Please join us for this event at 3:00 p.m. on what promises to be another great afternoon of music and a demonstration of the difference your past support has meant to City Strings United, its students and families!
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
