On Wednesday, February 13th, Advocates for Community through Musical Excellence (ACME) will hold its first Annual Instrument Ceremony and Concert at El Nuevo Rodeo to benefit the children of the music-education program, El Sistema Minneapolis.
Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra will perform a private performance of Vivaldi and Piazzolla Seasons featuring soloists Concertmaster Erin Keefe, and Violinists Michael Sutton and Pamela Arnstein.
El Sistema Minneapolis is a program whose purpose is to help high-risk youth through community development and to inspire social change through classical music. ACME will celebrate its first class of students from Nellie Stone Johnson Community School and BEACONs of the YMCA of Greater Twin Cities Youth and Teen Enrichment Center with a performance on their hand-made cardboard instruments. Following will be a ceremony where students are presented their hard-earned, real instruments. The event will include dinner by El Nuevo Rodeo and a silent auction.
Tickets are $35.00. To order, please visit http://acme.uticketit.com/ or call 952-465-4756. Free parking is available in the US Bank Parking Lot. Entrance is located off of 27th Street.
Guests are encouraged to bring canned food items which will be contributed to the families of the El Sistema children. Silent auction prizes include an autographed home-made recipe from Amy Klobuchar and a private in-home dinner and performance from Ken Freed and a quartet of musicians from the Minnesota Orchestra.
