Event description

Description

Join us for an afternoon of classical music with pianist Mark Rossnagel, music director at Trinity Lutheran Church in Staten Island, and concert pianist in New York and New England. Mark loves sharing great classical music with audiences and is grateful for the opportunity to do so at St. Luke‘s in support of the GO Project.

The GO Project brings public school children, with limited access to resources, up to grade level (and beyond) through integrated, year-round academic programs and family support services. The majority of GO Project students come from the Lower East Side, the East Village, and Chinatown. Many are first or second generation American, low-income children—all facing serious difficulties at school. For the 2017-2018 academic school year, St. Luke’s is hosting over 70 students; 2 first grade classes, 2 second grade classes, 2 third grade classes, and 1 fourth grade class.

The GO Project intervenes early to address the academic, social, and emotional needs of students who are struggling at the beginning stages of their academic career. We help our students to develop the educational foundation and self-esteem they need to succeed before becoming academically and socially disengaged. Our program increases time on task for our students by the equivalent of 30 days per school year, providing them the targeted support they need to overcome academic and social challenges.

Tickets sales support the GO Project at St. Luke’s and subsidizes a GO Family admission.

Light refreshments will be served after the concert
