Plugged In at Winthrop Park
Tuesday, August 1, 2017 11:00am - 1:00pm
Plugged In is a nonprofit rock band program in Needham teaching kids ages 6-19 throughout Massachusetts about using music to create positive change in the world. In addition to weekly ensemble band classes, private lessons, songwriting workshops, summer camp and community performances, five times a year Plugged In students perform in benefit concerts that raise money for causes and organizations chosen by the students themselves. Plugged In provides a nurturing and supportive community to which young musicians feel a sense of belonging, an opportunity to express and be acknowledged for their musical interests and a chance to use their music to help others around the world.
This summer we have two 2-week Music That Matters day camp sessions. In addition to raising money for charities at their end of camp concerts, Plugged In campers will be performing at Winthrop Park in Harvard Square on Tuesday, July 18 and Friday, July 28 from 11-1 to raise money for their chosen beneficiaries.
