Being incarcerated is difficult enough, but being incarcerated and the only music you hear is Rap is awful. During Mr. Sanders’ concert I could close my eyes and feel like I was home again.
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.
