Kidznotes is a music for social change program based on the El Sistema model of youth orchestras, which started in Venezuela and has now spread worldwide.
Kidznotes engages students, pre-K through 12th grade, in an intense, fully integrated, out-of-school musical program that includes instrumental instruction, choir, music theory, general music, orchestra, and band.
What is ‘Over the Edge’?
‘Over the Edge’ is a Canadian-based adventure company. The event allows participants to raise funds for Kidznotes in exchange for the opportunity to rappel the Capital Bank Plaza building in downtown Raleigh. One of the top rappelling fundraisers was Joe Kwon, the cellist for the Avett Brothers.
We were on site to record footage for Social Solved, the company that manages Kidznotes social media presence.
No, we didn’t rappel…they had elevators.
