When Christopher Tasik, past president of the Kiwanis Club, Eva Maldonado, newly-appointed board member of the INTAKE Organization and Angie Durrell, #INTAKEFounder sat down for lunch, we never imagined that a speaking opportunity would come and that a week later we would be having lunch with all the members of the Stamford Kiwanis Club. As it turned out, over 90% attendance occurred at their past meeting in May.
When preparing for this presentation, we wanted it to be meaningful for our audience members—- dedicated to volunteerism, community service, and strong supporters of education. That is why we decided to ditch our “scripted presentation” and start with a blank page! After all, we pride ourselves in tailoring our artistic presentation and our curriculum to reflect our community’s voice.
Here is a video of this presentation. Kiwanis members were happy playing a game that in our Native Instrument Academy we like to call “Name That Tune”, they shared their favorite music genres and composer, and they also agreed to “get down and boogie for music education” at our upcoming concert with Spread Music Now on May 30th following the model of Studio 54 (a popular music club from the late 70’s with performances of all the major artists in pop-culture).
On behalf of the INTAKE Organization, we thank the Kiwanis Club of Stamford for their pledge and support our matching grant campaign with SpreadMusicNow, BeFoundation, and Crowdrise.
