Plugged In Events

Community Engage Evenings

Overview

  • At the beginning of each Band Class Session, we hold a Community Engage Evening at which students present to each other charities and causes that are important to them.
  • Students explain how they learned about the charities, what needs are met by the organizations and why they feel it is important to support the organizations.
  • Also during the evening, an adult whose work involves using the arts to effect social change speaks with the students.
  • At the end of the evening, students vote to determine the recipient charitable organization for the concert.

Social Consciousness

  • One of the most important aspects of Plugged In is the emphasis placed on showing students how they can use music to better the world.
  • The concerts at the end of each session raise money for charitable organizations chosen by the students.
  • Our goal is to provide role models for the students of ways to include philanthropy in their lives and careers.
Benefit Concert Series
  • At the end of each session, students participate in three evenings of performances.  
  • Regardless of whether a student is on stage or in the audience during a performance, electricity and excitement is felt in the air.  
  • Students performing feel like professional musicians and the students in the audience cheer them on and support the performers.  
  • Tickets and swag are sold during the evening and the profit is donated to the charity chosen during the Community Engage Evening.
Community Performances
  • Plugged In students are invited to perform at many community and non-profit organization events, such as:
    • 4th of July Parade
    • Needham Street Fairs
    • New Years Needham Celebration
    • Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration
    • Walker Schoool
  • These performances are optional and voluntary.
  • Students can perform with their bands, by themselves and/or with students from other bands.
Summer Camp Performances

Community Engage

  • One of the most important aspects of Plugged In is the emphasis placed on using music to better the world.
  • Plugged In models this concept by turning the “recital” at the end of each session into a benefit concert for a charity chosen by the students.
  • Our students choose that charity at Community Engage.

Harvard Square Busking

  • Students bring their music straight to the public during this offsite performance. 
  • Busking gives our students a unique and fun performance experience.

Summer Benefit Concert

  • This is the performance we work so hard for each session.
  • Students perform with their bands for friends and family while raising awareness and funds for the charity of their choice.
Annual Benefit Concerts
  • Each year we hold two fundraisers to help support Plugged In.  
  • Sometimes we have corporate sponsored events play in an exciting public performance space.
  • Sometimes we host professional bands and host an event.
Capital Campaign
  • Beginning in the fall of 2013 we launched phase 1 of our Capital Campaign to raise funds to buy a permanent home for Plugged In.  
  • During our first, silent phase, we raised over $100,000 to make the purchase.  
  • Now, having moved in and running classes, phase 2, our public phase, will begin.  
  • Our goal is to raise another $300,000 over the next two years through private donations and other means.
