Thank you for your interest in Mozart for a Cause!

As many Americans prepare to celebrate the holidays, hundreds of vulnerable children are still separated from their families in shelters across the country. In addition, over 14,000 unaccompanied immigrant minors are in U.S. detention–an all-time high. To make matters worse, immigrant families seeking asylum are being assaulted with tear gas at the border.

These people, many young and supremely vulnerable, are suffering emotionally, mentally, and physically. The trauma of these experiences will be with them for years to come. Advocacy groups are working tirelessly to reunite and support families amidst impossible circumstances.

On December 17, volunteer musicians from the Greenville Symphony, Spartanburg Philharmonic, and Converse College, with John Young Shik Concklin, conductor, have donated their time and talent to help Families Belong Together support every family traumatized at our border.

All of Greenville is invited to attend this beautiful concert! We’d be honored if you helped spread the word.

The bar will be open, along with a bake sale to benefit Families Belong Together.

One-hour Program:
  • Fanfare and Spooky Does the Bunny Hop from Sonata for Flute and Oboe, Scott Robbins
  • Oboe Quartet in F Major, W. A. Mozart
  • Play, Kelly Vaneman
