This year is already off to a very busy start! Our musical outreach programs are in full swing and the kids are working hard to meet their goals. In fact, many of the students we serve were even working over the holidays to prepare for competitions, concerts and more. We are in awe of the talent and dedication in the children we serve. Here are just a few updates.
“Runaway Blues” has left the station! Aisha Ussery, M.Ed. and her lead cast members put in many hours of rehearsal time over the holiday preparing for Music Doing Good in School’s production of “Runaway Blues” at The Hobby Center on May 10, 2019. They are working hard to learn their parts, lyrics, and choreography. Aisha is currently working on set design, costumes, and all of the details that makes this a production a stellar experience, year after year. Take a sneak peak HERE to catch part of their rehearsals for “Runaway Blues.”

Last week, Music Doing Good with Instruments surprised Fernando with a new violin! Fernando began studying music at KIPP SHARP College Prep Lower School – Fine Arts with Ms. Herdeman, and now he plays with Mr. Rivera in the orchestra at Kipp Sharpstown College Preparatory! Mr. Rivera told us Fernando is one of his most dedicated orchestra members, and we’re overjoyed we could provide him with a new violin!
Music Doing Good in Service has been very busy preparing students for UIL competition on February 2, 2019 at Atascocita High School. Phillip Hall will be providing piano accompaniment for his students in the competition. He has also spent many hours preparing them to learn the music, fostering confidence and stage presence. We wish these students the best of luck in the upcoming competition!
