As part of our mission we are bringing elements of the wind band, in this case the hit brass and percussion group FORZA, to West Oaks Mall for a free performance. This performance will feature music from jazz, funk, pop and holiday tunes. What better way to get in the spirit of the holidays than to spend some time with this fantastic group of musicians. The concert is this Saturday, December 16th in the food court at West Oaks Mall. The performance will be from noon-1pm. We hope to see you there!
Music To My Mind is proud to welcome the hit brass and percussion group - Forza, to our organization. Forza will serve as the premier musical ambassador group for the organization. This announcement is late in coming as Forza has already been working with us over the past year serving as the musical face of the organization. Through their assistance we have been able to bring music of the wind band to several local charities and nonprofits as well as bringing exposure of our mission to several corporate and private organizations. Forza is also an IMG Records Performing Artist. If you would like Forza to perform for your event, please visit the "Contact" page and send us a message.
In addition to making donations in person you can now make donations directly through our website. Visit the "Make a Donation" page. All credit card payments are processed through Square. Please remember that every donation counts no matter how much. Your donations allow us to help educators provide for their students by helping them with continuing training and professional development and students to grow by helping them to experience education that might not be offered during the regular school day. Do you also want to help promote and preserve the wind band and its various forms? Your donation helps to support musicians keeping these ensembles alive in the community.
