New Registered Non-Profit Announces the Formation of All Shore Orchestra
The All Shore Orchestra Director’s Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has confirmed the formation of a New Jersey-based youth orchestra for children in grades 7 to 9.
The All Shore Orchestra Director’s Association is dedicated to helping create and develop premium quality performance opportunities for young string players in Monmouth County and Ocean County, both situated along the Jersey Shore. The day-to-day reality is that string orchestras and orchestra programs, in general, are sparse in these areas and the association hopes to fill a void.
“Today’s great announcement is about nurturing a strong call to action for so many talented music teachers and members of the local communities to support orchestra programs,” expressed, Dan Martinho, Founder, All Shore Orchestra. “I’m absolutely delighted with the interest already expressed by several super-talented music teachers in the region who wish to further our cause. It has been a huge vote of confidence in the actions that we have been empowered to take on behalf of the children of the nearby counties.”
The philosophy of All Shore Orchestra centers around the belief that the orchestra as an ensemble is an inextricable part of Western culture, featured in virtually all aspects of media and the arts, and as such deserves its rightful place in education and the local community. The 21st century orchestra is not just about playing – it is about developing future loyal audiences and developing a life-long appreciation of music in all those involved. Grade 7 to 9 violinists, violists, cellists, and double bassists attending public, private, or home schools in Monmouth, Middlesex, and Ocean Counties are welcome to audition.
