Little Miracles Show Choir



Notes

“Little Miracles” Foundation has started with a school district right next to where Grace lives, where music funding had been drastically reduced due to the district’s budget challenges. Music and art programs had been eliminated by the East Ramapo Board of Education in 2012. The district has been embroiled in financial controversy. Funding for the choir will be donated by Vanderwaal and matched with state funds secured by NYS Senator David Carlucci.

Grace has partnered with Fender and Shure, who provide a quantity of free musical instruments and professional grade audio equipment to each district as the program builds. In addition to the equipment, Grace is providing two college scholarships in the affected districts for high school seniors who want to pursue music at the next level.

The “Little Miracles” is a show choir for middle school students. There is no try-out required; rather all that is required is simply a passion for music. Most of the kids have no other way to have music be part of their lives, so “Little Miracles” gives them an opportunity to learn and enjoy music. The group is made up of fourth, fifth, and sixth graders from the East Ramapo School District.

Grace got the NY senate “woman of distinction” award for her work with the choir.
