What is the D’Addario Foundation you say? Well their mission statement is that they are a unique 501c3 non-profit grant-making organization providing monetary and product support to high-quality sustainable music instruction programs on the frontline to improve access to music education. They support programs that bring music back into communities and schools and get kids playing as early and as frequently as possible. The D’Addario Foundation believes in the transformative power of music and that mentoring and building communities through music can positively affect social change.

Reilly, Blake Mills, LP, Garfunkel and Oates and more performed at the Palace Theatre, raising money that will provide kids access to music programs, college assistance scholarships, and encourage more females to pick up guitars through D’Addario’s Girls In Music Initiative.
