Look What We Hatched!

Dear Friends,

We are beyond delighted and grateful to be able to tell you that we not only met but exceeded the goal of our Hatchfund campaign! Thanks to all of our amazing supporters who gave us a strong early start, kept the momentum going, and pushed us over the finish line. 

As a result of your generosity, we have been able to add the extraordinary Gabriela Diaz as our emerging program's second mentor, and three new students to the program. It's our pleasure to introduce you to the students of Violobos I and II! Click on the photos for full-size images.

Our three newest students come from the Walnut Hill School for the Arts, an independent boarding and day high school offering a transformational high school experience purposefully designed for artists in grades 9-12. We are excited to be partnering with the Walnut Hill School as we expand our program, and are indebted to the support of their experienced faculty and staff, especially Jenny Elowitch, Director of Music, and Laura Thielke, Director of Chamber Music. 

Thank you again to everyone who helped with this campaign, through giving, sharing, or encouraging! This is just the beginning of an exciting journey for our new program, and we hope you'll come along for the ride.
