Joyce DiCamilloLeigh Grant, Adrienne Reedy and Margaret Simon, donated their time and talent to partner with Project Music by hand-painting 3-D printed violins fabricated by GE. The instruments were offered for auction on May 1 at a fundraising event at the GE GO-Create space in Stamford. Attendees enjoyed a concert by Project Music’s faculty, and wine and hors d’oeuvres before participating in the violin auction to benefit a much-needed $25,000 Matching Grant recently offered to Project Music.

Project Music’s mission is to use the transformative power of music to effect positive social change for students most in need of access, opportunity and inspiration. Project Music is a 5-day-a-week, intensive after-school program which immerses children in high-quality music education, while building good citizenship and nurturing leadership qualities. Project Music’s final concert of the season will be held on Thursday, June 6 at 6pm at King School Performing Arts Center, 1450 Newfield Ave. in Stamford.
All Greenwich Pen Women are invited to attend this free concert!

The Spring issue of The Pen Woman (page 19) features Catherine Horn’s article on Linda Hortick’s adventure with a peregrine falcon she and her husband encountered while on an educational voyage aboard the Viking Polaris. The world’s fastest falcon visited their private balcony and inspired Linda’s poem “The Flight of the Peregrine Falcon” which was shared with the captain and passed on to everyone on the ship.
