Ms. Jopling, founder of the Daisy Jopling Music Mentorship Foundation (DJMMF), will also be unveiling Symphony of World Citizens. This Member’s Circle offers fans and patrons the opportunity to support the foundation’s youth programs. In turn, they will receive monthly invitations to VIP concerts with Daisy and special guests, on demand streaming performances and documentaries, band merchandise & music, and complimentary tickets to incredible live streamed performances taking place across the globe–from the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater to the ancient wonders of the Taj Mahal and Great Pyramids. Best yet…members can share these gifts with an aspiring musician, favorite music mentor, or fellow arts lover.
The ultimate goal is to help cultivate the next generation of musical artists through cross-cultural collaboration, world class mentorship and performance opportunities. These experiences can transform children’s lives and bring communities together as citizens of the world.
When asked why the Daisy Jopling Music Mentorship Foundation’s work and this Member’s Circle is so important to her, Daisy stated, “The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted just about every person, from every walk of life, in this country. In times like these, many people have to cut costs. That’s why Symphony of World Citizens is so important to me. Nobody should be forced to give up on their dreams, especially not a child. I’m hopeful that our programs can continue providing solace and joy, and that through our Member’s Circle, we can grow a vibrant community of stewards whose support will indeed launch our aspiring young musicians’ dreams.
DJMMF brings the power of world class music making into community performances that transform people’s lives through three core initiatives:
• Mentorship by world class musicians for youth to study and perform with them on major stages
- Removing barriers such as cost for youth to attend world class concerts
- Supporting low cost and tuition free high quality music programs for children bydonating fundsTo date, Daisy’s foundation has given almost 1,000 children from all backgrounds the opportunity to participate in a mentorship program. It has given almost 7,000 children, and over 1,000 residents from underserved areas, the opportunity to attend a performance by the foundation’s world class artists, free of charge.To RSVP for the event, visit: http://bit.ly/BeMyViolintine.
