The very talented and ambitious young men and women who make up the Rio NYN jazz ensemble at Rio Linda High School in Sacramento, CA have received an invitation to participate in this year's NY Voices invitational, but they need help to get there.
OUR STORY:

Every year, hundreds of high schools and colleges compete for a coveted invitation to the New York Voices Jazz Festival.

Please help our kids achieve their dream!

WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

The New York Voices Jazz Festival at St. Charles North is a non-competitive invitational event open to high school and college vocal jazz groups from around the nation. A total of six high schools and six colleges will perform a 20 minute set for members of the New York Voices to be followed by a separate 30 minute clinic with one member.

LITERALLY, A ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY:

1. For students to encourage and support each other in the pursuit of the vocal jazz idiom.

2. To receive expert input from the members of New York Voices.

3. To have the opportunity to experience New York Voices live in concert.

With one of the highest poverty rates in the country, opportunities like this don't come along often for kids in Sacramento.

This year on April 6, the fourth annual New York Voices Jazz Festival will be held at St. Charles North High School in Charles, IL.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The very talented and ambitious young men and women who make up the Rio NYN jazz ensemble at Rio Linda High School in Sacramento, CA have received an invitation to participate in this year's invitational, but they need help to get there.

The high school fine arts program doesn't have funds to get the ensemble to Chicago, and these talented kids might miss their only opportunity to experience an event of this magnitude.

The group is $5,000 short, and the clock is ticking. We must raise these funds by February 15 in order to secure the arrangements, accommodations, and a position in the invitational.

A small contribution can make a difference and can make an under-privileged child's dream come true.

They cannot do this without your help!
