Notes and Editorial Reviews
Sales of this CD will directly benefit music programs in Bay Area schools through the KDFC Music Matters Foundation. New instruments, more after-school classes, extended teaching hours, choir scholarships for inner-city kids... the KDFC CD series, which has now raised more than $130,000, has made a tangible difference in communities throughout the Bay Area. The KDFC commitment to the importance of music in the classroom is symbolized by the annual Music Matters Music Educator of the Year Award, which celebrates the good work and life-long impact of local music teachers.
