Supporting: Sing for America 2023 Fundraising for Sing For America Foundation



Thanks for Reading!

Please help me support the Arab American Arts Institute for a summer music scholarship to the Arabic Music Retreat making a tax-deductible donation through my Sing for America page. 

The Arab American Arts Institute supports a summer music education program in classical Arabic music held in Massachusetts at Mt.Holyoke College, directed by oud virtuoso, Simon Shaheen.  Also involved is my own former professor, A.J. Racy and other expert teachers.   Here is a video of the Retreat: 

Here is the Retreat website:  

I asked if these funds can help support a needy student, as many musicians have difficulty saving up for the tuition.  The scholarships are awarded based on finances to musicians in the US, and sometimes, to international students. I personally attended the Retreat along with my son, and can speak to the high quality of the experience. 

Between now and mid-April,  I’ll be rehearsing with the Sing for America Chorus for our  Gala Benefit Concert  This year's heme is “Brand New Day: Songs of Hope and Renewal" on April 16 at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco. Please use “SFA082” in the coupon box at City Box Office for a $10 discount off the $45 ticket price. It’s going to be a terrific show!   Writing in my singer number - SFA082 also means that half the ticket price will go towards my cause described above. 

Even if you can’t donate right now, you can help me reach my fundraising goal by sharing this page on social media or email. Just click the share icons on the left sidebar to help me spread the word.

Thanks so much for your support!

Together, we can make a difference.
