SIX has partnered with the Save the Music Foundation to bring a Keys + Kids Grant to Q252 The Queens School of Inquiry.
Through this contribution, the students – in grades six through 12 – will receive one Casio Celviano Grand Hybrid Piano (the most advanced technology in digital pianos) and ten Casio WK-7600 Music Workstations with Gig Bags (allowing students to compose, record and perform their compositions, & safely take keyboards home to practice). SIX hopes to maximize the Foundation’s efforts to ensure that all children have the opportunity to participate in and be empowered by instrumental music education programs. SIX will donate $1.00 for every ticket sold between March 14 and March 28.
On the announcement of the grant, Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss said “Save the Music is doing amazing work in helping young people to discover and hone their musical talent. We are so happy to be a part of this wonderful program by providing these instruments and the joy of learning to be a musician to these kids.”
Henry Donahue, Executive Director of Save The Music, said “This partnership has been a long time coming since our initial conversations with SIX Broadway in 2020. Now that shows and schools are back in-person, we're excited to bring the "queens" to a school in Queens! Thank you for your generous donation of a Keys + Kids Piano Grant to Q252 The Queens School of Inquiry."
