Last night I was privileged to hear Erika Wueschner and Richard Dowling give an outstanding concert in the Bridge View Center Performing Arts Theater. I must tell you that it was one of the most pleasant and inspiring musical presentations I have had in years. Bringing this kind of talent to small town America is a gift that is impossible to measure.
Piatigorsky Foundation concerts are made possible through the work of volunteers in each of the communities we serve. With the assistance of a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, we created a Volunteers’ Handbook to help communities help themselves. Individuals and community groups can participate in producing and organizing Piatigorsky Foundation Concerts in their neighborhoods.
By volunteering, you are reaching out to new listeners and spreading the joy of live classical music. Piatigorsky Foundation concerts are wonderful opportunities for communities to come together while listening to some of the world’s greatest music performed by dynamic, highly accomplished artists.
Volunteers in communities hosting concerts help with publicizing concerts, organizing concert receptions, identifying new venues, and gathering statistics. Opportunities in the New York office are project-based and vary according to the interests and time commitment of the volunteers.
