“Strings at the Kroc Center” Kids Prepare for Inaugural Concert May 9, 2014: Kids in the new Strings at the Kroc Center program launched only in January through a partnership between the Salvation Army Kroc Center of Boston and the national Boston‐based Classics for Kids Foundation are tuning up their instruments to prepare for their inaugural public performance.

To demonstrate the results of their hard work, a special concert on Friday, May 9 at 6:00 pm at The Salvation Army’s Performing Arts Theater (650 Dudley Street) will feature kids ages 10-12—part of Strings at the Kroc Center program—performing in small ensembles.

For the past several years, CFKF has embarked on a large community project in Boston, MA where CFKF is based. We’ve given matching grants to many programs serving at-risk kids in the area, and have worked with them to evaluate the success of our partnerships. To date, over 15 programs and hundreds of kids have been served.
