Kids in Concert - 2013
CELEBRATING THE ARTISTIC TALENTS OF NEW JERSEY’S PUBLIC SCHOOL CHILDREN
On Thursday, March 21, 2013, Long Branch High School, a state-of-the-art school facility with a premiere performing arts auditorium, hosted Education Law Center's (ELC) annual Kids in Concert (KIC) event. Now in its fifteenth year, KIC is a unique concert experience that exposes students of all ages and abilities to the performing arts. KIC is designed to provide students in New Jersey’s high need school districts the opportunity to develop and perform on one stage.
Since 1997, ELC has partnered with the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) to present KIC to celebrate the extraordinary talents of New Jersey's public school students. Under the supervision of a professional artistic director, students in Kindergarten through 12th grade are chosen to perform original pieces based on a pre-selected theme. Stage performances typically range from vocalists, jazz ensembles, concert choirs, theater groups, gospel choirs, orchestras, pianists, dance groups and spoken word poetry.
A contribution to Kids in Concert supports Education Law Center’s advocacy efforts on behalf of public school children throughout NJ. Because ELC’s services are provided free of charge, we rely on the generous support of individuals, educational organizations, corporations and foundations. To support our work, please consider becoming an event sponsor or placing an ad in the KIC Program Journal.
The Board of Trustees and staff at ELC would like to thank the individuals and organizations that have supported the event.
