JEFF LITTLE TRIO
JeffLittle

RCA is bringing back The Jeff Little Trio, which ranked among your top preferences in every audience survey. Their music is a combination of rockabilly, blues and bluegrass.  The Boston Globe:  “Jeff Little tore the place apart with his wondrously quick and articulate piano style. He is tricky and playful, yet always intelligent and richly melodic.”  National Public Radio:  “Jeff Little is a remarkable musician, steeped in the tradition of his native Blue Ridge, yet also a virtuosic and eclectic innovator."

OUTREACH

 

Supporting and funding music education for the region's youth has been a part of the RCA mission from its inception.

Dating from 1986, RCA has hired performers who are dedicated to educating students and student outreach
programs have been made available in area schools. With the introduction of the Donor of Note giving program,
additional gifts have made it possible to expand the RCA Outreach program.

The RCA board is grateful to our donors for their generosity this season, and so are our principals and teachers.
Here is one of the thank you notes we received for grants of instrument purchase and repair to local schools:

Dear Folks,

As principal of Montross Middle School in Westmoreland County, I am so thankful to your association for your generous gifts over the past three years. Rob Wright, our band director, is tickled pink with the needed supplies/equipment provided for his classes by you. As all of us are handling personal and business financial hardships, your dedicated association of music lovers continues year after year to promote and support music in our schools. For that we are truly thankful.

Sincerely,

Jane S. Geyer

March 2015
Michael Chertock

Michael Chertock will reach out to very young students at the Northumberland
Elementary School after his matinee performance. His repertoire includes “Music
that paints a picture,” “Music to make you happy and sad” and “Old McDonald had a
farm: pig, chicken, snail, and dinosaur.”

 

November 2014
Intersection

The world-renowned chamber trio "Intersection" gave a
workshop to a large audience of middle school students.
“Chamber with a Twist” is their motto, expressing their ability
to make new music with old instruments.

May 2014
RCA was privileged to make a donation in May 2014 to the Northumberland
school system to support the student-instrument loan program. Loan instruments
are provided at no cost to needy band students. This donation allows for needed
repairs and purchase of more used instruments to enhance the program. Walt Mallorie,
Director of Bands accepted the donation.


Middle School Outreach
Wright

Rob Wright, band director for the Westmoreland Middle School, leads
125 students in his program. A donation from RCA for new instruments was
given in May 2014.


Elementary School Outreach

Joia

Joia Tubes® were developed to be an orchestral sounding instrument for
children to play in a classroom setting. They make notes using
paddles and compressed air.  Stephanie Philips’ elementary school
students love them!

In May 2014, RCA gave funds for the music room at
the Northumberland Elementary School. Stephanie Phillips, Music Director,
used the money to purchase Joia tubes.

 

May 2014
Middle School Outreach
Wright

Rob Wright, band director for the Westmoreland middle school, leads
125 students in his program. A donation from RCA for a video
projector featuring the software "SmartMusic" will be used to enhance
practice and performance. This software can be used on home computers
to aid in student practice sessions and can be used to show classical and
jazz performances in the classroom.

 

August 2012
August 2012 Outreach
