THE STORY:

Too often, the only images portrayed of our youth are negative. However, we know there are other stories to tell. The reality is, more community based activities and meaningful programs are needed. That is why Muntu is launching United We Drum. United We Drum is a youth centered music instruction program. This program is not just about teaching music. It is also a mechanism through which youth can learn about themselves and their own capacity to achieve.

UNITED WE DRUM

HELP TURN A CHILD'S LOVE OF MUSIC INTO MUSICIANSHIP!

Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago's United We Drum class is a 7 week program that will run from 7/7/18-8/11/18 at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts (915 E. 60th St., Chicago, IL 60637). The program will serve youth ages 8-17 years old at 9am-10am on Saturdays. Instruction will be given by Master drummers. Program participants will be taught the history and cultural context of rhythms and be given opportunities to explore their own creativity. The program will culminate at Muntu’s United We Drum Family Day where participants will be featured performers  showcasing what they have learned.

Our goal is to raise $3,000.

We want to ensure that UNITED WE DRUM is available to as many youth as possible. Therefore, scholarship opportunities will be available.

To do this, we need your help.

Please make a gift today to help support this program

 

Your donations assist in:

  • Enabling us to provide scholarship opportunities for program participants
  • Underwriting the cost for purchasing percussive instruments for the participants

To those of you who have already donated, we want to THANK YOU. We are making progress, but still have a way to go to reach our goal. There is still time for YOU to make a difference! EVERY GIFT is meaningful and every gift will have an impact.
