I am writing to invite you to a gala event benefiting Education Through Music-Los Angeles (ETM-LA) on Monday, October 19. ETM-LA is a stakeholder in the LA Philharmonic’s new YOLA movement, and as a local nonprofit, works to bring music education to schools across LA. The evening begins at 6:30 and will feature a rare concert appearance by Johnny Mathis at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood, along with Patti Austin, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, and Justin Guarini. They are coming together to help bring ETM’s special brand of music education to southern California: one that partners with schools to make music lessons (e.g., violin, guitar, etc.) a part of the basic school day for EVERY CHILD in school, no matter what their income.
Schools in your readership are currently partnering with ETM-LA, and we would be thrilled for any local print or web exposure your publication could offer – I would be happy to forward a press release to that end.
It looks like we’ll have sellout crowd. Here’s hoping you can join us – all of our press guests are invited to join us for the concert and a VIP reception immediately following, including a brief interview session. Please RSVP to Victoria Lanier, firstname.lastname@example.org.
