MFE to Participate in Lancaster County Community Foundation’s Seventh Annual Extraordinary Give!

We are thrilled to announce that Music For Everyone will be participating in the seventh annual ExtraGive on November 16th. The ExtraGive 2018 is shaping up to be the biggest yet, so be sure to mark your calendars for this one day online giving event. On November 16th be sure to visit the ExtraGive Website, choose MFE, and donate. There will be blocks of time throughout the day that each organization can earn an extra $1,000 in prizes when people like you make a donation. This means your donation, of whatever amount, could be increased by $1,000 through the LCCF. All you have to do is donate!

MFE will also be teaming up with several other nonprofits in Lancaster County, for the fifth year, to throw a rockin’ party to celebrate the Extra Give. Join us for a good time at Tellus360 for “The Great Giving Gig” at one of the coolest spots in town, for music, art, and a day that celebrates giving. We will see you on November 16th.

MFE in the schools Returns and Expands, Bigger than ever

As the school year shifts into full gear, “MFE in the Schools” begins its seventh year as a successful community based program. This program is designed to address the “mentoring/instructional gap” in music programs by placing seasoned professional musicians in the schools to work alongside teachers and directly with students to provide lessons as well as small and large group ensemble mentorship. Dr. Michael Jamanis Jr. (strings), Rick Ferrarelli (woodwinds), Gentry Stoltzfus (Brass), Frances Miller (Strings), and Matthew Woodson (Percussion) and their team of volunteers will work directly with more than 400 students per week!

We are also excited that the MFE in the Schools Program will continue in the School district of Columbia. This expansion will help bolster Columbia School District’s music program, and allow MFE in the Schools to reach even more students. To learn more visit the MFE WEBSITE.

Music For Everyone Approved to receive funds from the EITC!

MFE has a great opportunity for businesses to both contribute funds to MFE and receive a tax credit at the same time. How you ask? Through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit, also known as the EITC.

This credit allows a business to pledge funds to a non-profit educational organization and deduct 75-90% of that contribution as a tax credit. For example, if your business were to pledge $10,000 for two years to MFE, your business could write off $9,000 of that donation. That’s a $10,000 donation that only costs $1,000! Think about how many instruments we could provide to schools inLancaster County with those funds, all while allowing your business to benefit from a tax credit. If you would like to know more please contact Brendan at MFElancaster@gmail.com.

Lancaster, PA “Street Piano Capital of the World”

As you have heard, (literally) Keys for the City pianos are still on the streets in downtown Lancaster. And while you’ve heard those pianos, have you also heard that Lancaster is the “Street Piano Capital of the World”? We can make this claim based on several metrics:

  • Consecutive years for the program: We’ve placed pianos on the streets for nine years running, the most consecutive years of any city that we are aware of.
  • Length of program: Our pianos are out for use by the public 24/7 for over four full months. Again, a longer stretch of time than any other city we are aware of.
  • Piano per capita: Lancaster can boast of having one street piano per every 4,237.5 residents (14 pianos for 59,325 people [2013 Census Data])
  • Piano Keys per capita: We can also boast of having one piano key per 48.15 residents!

So, get your groove on and come down to tickle a few ivories on any and all of the 14 pianos. Head to the Keys For The City Website or Music for everyone’s Website for more information regarding locations and additional events around the pianos. You can also follow the pianos on the MFE Facebook page where we will be posting pictures and announcing various events and promotions relating to the pianos all summer long.

We’d like to thank the following lead sponsors for making Keys 2018 a reality, and for further solidifying Lancaster’s status as the “Street Piano Capital of the World”:

About the Reclaimed Pianos Project:
——————————————————————————————-
In 2017 Music For Everyone teamed up with Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority in a project to create art out of the Keys for the City pianos. Many of these pianos in the past would end up in the trash and, through a generous sponsorship by LCSWMA, now they have a new life as beautiful pieces of art.

All of the proceeds from the sale of these pieces of art will go directly to supporting music programs throughout Lancaster County!

——————————————————————————————-
About LSJ Studios

Located in the heart of the downtown Lancaster, PA’s art district, LSJ Studios is a striking 900 square foot contemporary art gallery and open studio. A combination of wide open space, natural light, clean lines and an industrial finish, this spaces promises originality and a creative edge in Lancaster’s growing Art scene.
