Local nonprofit HEART Music’s first gala fundraising event will benefit in-classroom support for music programs in the Athens-Clarke County public schools. The organization’s symphony orchestra made up of its teachers and high schoolers from Clarke Central and Cedar Shoals will perform, conducted by Athens Creative Theatre Program Leader Daniel Self. “I love this ensemble because it is pulling together lots of different musicians from different parts of Athens,” says HEART Music Executive Director Natalie Smith. Klezmer Local 42 will perform during the first half of the gala with Kishi Bashi closing out the night. There will be a live auction during intermission of items like a violin painted by Lou Kregel, a gift package from Canopy Studio, book bundles from Avid Bookshop and more. The ticket price includes food provided by Half Shepherd and drinks from Hendershot’s. To learn more about HEART Music, visit heartmusicathens.org.
