Letter from the President

We are excited to begin a new chapter in the SEF through our partnership with The MusicianShip. I am thrilled to see us reach out to support an organization whose mission mirrors our own!

A few of us had a chance to see this group in action at their summer showcase last week. We were able to experience how The MusicianShip enriches each of these children's lives as they performed on stage many of them for the first time. There was such a variety of music voice, piano, brass ensembles, solo performances, a drumline, and even some poetry. We also heard stories from some of the students about how The MusicianShip has become an integral part of their lives providing them with a positive environment that they might not otherwise experience outside of this program. There is real potential here the goal is to expand this program from Washington, D.C. to other communities.
