The UMMGC “Brothers in Song” program continues to grow this year! We are proud to announce we are taking the program to the West Coast where we plan on sending a group of clubbers in March to engage and grow with several high schools in the Los Angeles area. This summer, planning has already begun as we have developed a detailed budget and rough schedule of our plans.
The goal is to take 24 clubbers to host a larger group than we have in the past, but to still be matched with high school students with “Big Brother-Little Brother” relationships. Our venue will hopefully be on campus at UCLA where we will hold a 5 hour workshop followed by an evening activity and dinner the little brothers. As all the details are beginning to formulate into concrete plans, it is difficult for me to contain my excitement as we await another opportunity to impact the world outside of Ann Arbor and to hopefully touch a few students’ lives. The ensembles with which we have paired in the past have blown me away with their musical talent and their character. To culminate the entire relationship, all of these students will then join us on stage during our spring tour concert in Los Angeles this coming May.
