The Palm Beach Pops to Host
Mini-Concerts for Children in Boca Raton
(Palm Beach Gardens, FL – July 8, 2014) Charlotte Laurent-Ottomane, Executive Director of The Palm Beach Pops, today announced that the last two SUMMER ROCKS Mini-Concerts for Children would be held this Friday morning:
July 11 at 9 a.m.
Florence Fuller Child Development Center - East
200 N.E. 14th Street in Boca Raton
(Between N. Dixie Hwy. and N. Federal Hwy., just north of Glades Rd.)
July 11 at 10:30 a.m.
Florence Fuller Child Development Center - West
10130 185th Street South in Boca Raton
(West of 441 between Yamato Rd. and Clint Moore Rd.)
Following four 45-minute sessions this week that focused on each of the four sections of the orchestra (Brass, Woodwinds, Strings and Percussion), the two culminating Mini-Concerts will feature approximately a dozen professional musicians from The Palm Beach Pops, wrapping up the concepts shared the last few days with numerous local children.
"SUMMER ROCKS will be followed by a month long “Music & You” program in four North Palm Beach county schools this fall, that will serve approximately 1,200 children in the classroom. While securing funding is challenging, The Palm Beach Pops bears the entire cost of these programs. We continue to seek funds for the program and are grateful to those donors who help us make this a reality for our community and our children,” said Ms. Laurent-Ottomane.
