BENEFITING: HARMONY SOUTH DAKOTA
Harmony South Dakota is a FREE after-school music program for kids in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We meet from 2:50-5:30p.m. every day that school is in session, plus 5 weeks in the summer. Each week our kids sing in choir, rehearse in orchestra, have musicianship classes (which include percussion ensembles, dance, music theory & games, as well as world music history) and receive a weekly private lesson. Instruments are provided for the students. Harmony serves children from 12 different nations around the globe-- many of whom are from immigrant and refugee families that have resettled in our city. Harmony provides a safe and enriching community in which our students are thriving. Daily, our kids work not only on singing and playing music with excellence, but also on how to treat others with respect as they strive to focus on giving more than getting. Our current students are growing in size and need larger string instruments. We also have 20 new students signed up to begin this summer who will also need instruments. Please consider giving so that even more kids will have the opportunity to make music together each day at Harmony.
