Thank you for attending our Americana Music Fusion Concert

On behalf of the INTAKE Organization, I  thank those who attended our Americana Music Fusion concert this past weekend. For the first time, more than 130 musicians took the stage in a performance that was a unique cross-cultural fusion of classical, rock, and traditional music.

The concert drew an audience of close to 1,000 people, all coming together to experience music that represents the diversity of our communities and to celebrate the artistic achievements of our children. We are grateful that you could be among us at this special community event.

We hope that what you saw and heard at Americana Music Fusion will inspire you to take a continued interest in the work that INTAKE does.

INTAKE: Convening for the arts

Yesterday, the INTAKE Organization was invited to attend the “Convening: for the arts” presentation, hosted by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. It was wonderful to see a large crowd of philanthropists and supporters of the arts. Some of the most rewarding conversations had to do with native arts and instruments and how they could strengthen a community, by tracing back everyone’s cultural origin and seeing how their ancestry is still being  reflected on the 21st century.
INTAKE Organization looks forward to more “convening” [(kuhn-veen-ing) n. the coming together for a common purpose– creating a stronger community)] and to increasing its presence in New Haven.
