A Little Bit Closer Now: Help Some Needy Children Make Music

Thanks to the power of social media, a kind-hearted editor named Elizabeth Scalia and the willingness of folks to donate money to strangers, Stretto Youth Chamber Orchestra now is just $2,500 short of its goal, down from $4,000 10 days ago when I first started pestering people about it.

In case you missed it: The money being raised is to ensure all orchestra members can go on tour. The orchestra is remarkable because Stretto gathers children from a wide range of backgrounds - from boarding schools to foster homes - to make beautiful classical music.

Later this month, most members of Stretto Youth Chamber Orchestra are flying to Europe for a tour.  Families have been hosting fundraisers all year to make sure every musician who wants to go, will. To make a tax-free donation to the tour via paypal, visit Blue Mountain Music Festival's website,
