The first-ever recital by students enrolled in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Catholic Institute for Evangelization music education program will take place on

Saturday, June 17, 2000
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
St. Hugh of Cluny Parish Hall
Howard and Tioga Streets

The recital will feature 24 performances by students. The Institute started the music education program this past February. The goal is to introduce children to music in a positive Christian environment. There are already 85 music makers, ranging in age from four to eighteen, enrolled in the music education program. The young musicians study piano, voice and guitar.

The Catholic Institute for Evangelization is located in North Philadelphia at 4404 N. Fifth Street. The Institute helps develop parish-based evangelization teams by generating pastoral formation programs for the faithful in North Philadelphia with a special focus on the Hispanic community.

To encourage these budding musicians, the Institute would welcome donations of used pianos and guitars. Flutes, violins and other instruments would also be appreciated because it is hoped that the program will expand.
