Benefit Concert at the University of Texas Austin Raises Over $10K for The Initiative

April 10, 2016

 

Students in Marianne Gedigian’s flute studio at the University of Texas at Austin partnered with high school students from Jennifer Keeney’s Creative Flutist Service Ensemble to present a benefit concert at the Butler School of Music in Austin, Texas. Students designed and led the event; and fundraised for The Initiative, stating that “The arts have the power to speak to the human condition and unite audiences under a universal purpose. We believe education should be a basic inalienable right for all human beings.”

 

Through online ticket sales and fundraising sites, students exceeded the $5,000 match challenge and raised over $6,170 from 49 donors for a total of $11,170 to provide international round trip travel for some of The Initiative’s students this year!

 

“The arts have the power to speak to the human condition and unite audiences under a universal purpose. We believe education should be a basic inalienable right for all human beings.”

 

– Marianne Gedigian, Professor of Flute
