HELP US SUPPORT MUSIC EDUCATION AT THE CONCERT + CUISINE SERIES ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012!
Download a print-friendly version of the Concert + Cuisine flyer here.
Currently, the Kalani High School Music Department involves an impressive 26% of the total student body at Kalani High School, approximately 350 students. These students comprise the school’s three concert bands; marching band, jazz band, and orchestra.
Unfortunately, State provided funds have historically accounted for 3% or less of the Music Department’s annual operating budget. With annual program fees only contributing another 24% of funds, each year the Kalani Falcons Band Boosters must raise over 70% of the funds needed to keep the music programs running!
Due to the school’s rapidly aging instruments and equipment, some dating back to the 1960’s, and substantial spikes in student enrollment in recent years, your financial support is needed now more than ever!
You can lend your support by attending the Concert + Cuisine Series! Enjoy some good food and music to support a great cause!
On Friday, October, 19, 2012 we will be partnering up with MISO & ALE for the Concert + Cuisine Series, a unique pop-up dining fundraiser that unites the musical arts and culinary arts to raise funds to keep Kalani High School’s music programs in operation. On that evening, Chef Okuhara and Chef Gee will be preparing two different dining options for you to choose from and enjoy! See below for details.
