Press Conference on November 30th 
To Announce Formation of Nonprofit Music School

WHAT:             Press Conference to announce the formation of the Keystone Musical Arts Center, or "KMAC," a new nonprofit school of music in Mechanicsburg, PA. Plans for a facility to house the organization will be unveiled along with an invitation to the public to view the raw space. Current and future programs will be covered along with major fundraising initiatives. Grants, awards and early corporate commitments will be revealed and key staff will be introduced.

Bob Welsh, Executive Director of WheelHouse
Deb Fulham-Winston, Asset Development & Project Officer of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities
Remarks will be read from:

                       100 N. Cameron Street
                       Harrisburg, PA 17101

                                 Graphics of the facility build-out
WHY:                There is no other music school in the area that combines an experienced teaching staff with a focus on contemporary ensembles housed in a modern, sound-proofed facility. The school aims to be a valuable community partner serving all ages. Where the opportunity for musical education is limited, such as for homeschoolers, KMAC will fill the void. Collaboration with other area nonprofits to address the needs of mentally, physically or economically challenged individuals will be essential. Offering music therapy within a music school is unusual, but it is one more thing that makes the Keystone Musical Arts Center special and needed.

Mission Statement:  We unite with the community by offering diverse, high quality musical arts experiences which inspire, enrich and advance musicianship for students of all ages and skill levels.

We operate in an environment that emphasizes both classical and contemporary fundamentals, and nurtures self-expression with an enthusiastic passion for all music.
