Groundwork Music Project is hosting an afternoon of music and fun at Nutty Brown Café on Sunday, October 18th from 3 to 6 p.m. The 6th Annual Family FUN-raiser will feature local favorite Elizabeth McQueen as Master of Ceremonies, a performance by Parent’s Choice Award winner Joe McDermott, Groundwork Music Project, and other local family-friendly musicians.
Come early and participate in a ukulele workshop from 2:30 to 3:30. Those who register make a $25 per person payment on line and participate in a beginner group lesson. Ukes will be provided, and there will be a list of registrants at the door. The latter part of the lesson will double as a community style sing along, as the first people arrive. Register here.
As always, the Fall Family FUNraiser will include children’s games, a bouncy castle, face painting and balloon animals, and, as always, a performance from the Groundwork Music Orchestra whose acclaimed brand of family friendly music has made it an Austin staple. A silent auction will feature a Lake Travis lake house getaway, an Austin brand guitar signed by more than 10 local Austin celebrities, including as Shawn Colvin and Dale Watson, top-quality wine, and many more items.
All proceeds from this event will go to the Groundwork Music Project, which enhances the lives of Austin’s kids by providing free and low cost music classes, songwriting workshops and ukulele lessons to schools with limited means. Music is an essential element to the healthy development of children across a broad spectrum: emotional, cognitive, social and more. It is Groundwork Music Project’s mission to ensure that music does not disappear from Austin’s schools and kids’ lives today.
