SONG soars beyond holiday fundraising goals!

Thanks to new and dedicated donors, and the return of our anonymous Guardian Angel matching gift, SONG has reached new heights with its biggest fundraising appeal that enables our program to continue teaching children high-calibre choral and strings music as a means for positive social development.  A $6,000 matching gift this year, $1000 more than originally promised, brings the grand total to $17,895!  We are so blessed to receive such immense support and share an attitude of gratitude with the students, who know the community has faith in them and their potential for very bright futures!


Who We Are

Sounds of the Next Generation (SONG) is a free, socially inclusive choral and orchestral after-school music program for under-served children and youth in Northumberland County. Inspired by El Sistema, SONG promotes social development through the pursuit of musical excellence.

What We Do

SONG is a musical community where kids can learn, create, and be part of a team. Students sing in choir and play in a strings ensemble three times a week. All instruments, music, uniforms, and healthy snacks are provided for free thanks to the generosity of our donors, sponsors, and volunteers. All the kids need to bring is their enthusiasm and curiosity!

Kids learn transferable skills, including social engagement, inclusiveness, and leadership, which opens doors and helps them achieve brighter futures.
