SPECIAL NEEDS ARTS PROGRAMS PRESENTS FOUNDERS’ FUND CONCERT Sunday October 27, 2019
Special Needs Arts Programs, Inc. (SNAP) is delighted to invite residents of Lexington and surrounding towns to join us for our Annual Founders’ Fund concert and Art Show on Sunday, October 27th, 2pm, at the First Parish Church, 7 Harrington Road., Lexington. Founded in 1981, SNAPprovides people with developmental disabilities opportunities that celebrate each person's unique abilities while cultivating creative expression, building peer relationships, and fostering self-esteem through life-enhancing activities in the arts and music.
Our program this year is All Over The World and will focus on our shared humanity, that we are all connected despite any differences of culture, language and ability. The event will feature a performance by our SNAP Sing Along Chorus. Guest performers include Molly McGuire, Mezzo; Tevan Goldberg, Baritone; and guest artist and SNAP Advisory Board member Epp Sonin, Soprano.
This year we will honor Lexingtonian Christina Gamota with our first-ever SNAP Circle award. The SNAP Circle recognizes champions for people with special needs in our community. SNAP selects Circle Honorees for their exceptional work to promote the talents and abilities of people with special needs and the contributions they make in our community and beyond. Christina has been a positive force in our community for raising awareness of the special needs community.
SNAP will also celebrate the 90th birthday of our co-founder, Marilyn Abel. SNAP began as an idea to use music to bridge the typically-abled and differently-abled community. Today, we honor and carry on the important legacy of our founders Marilyn Abel and Judy Goldner.
In addition to the concert, boxed cards and matted prints created by our Special Artists will be on display and available for purchase. The concert will be followed by a reception and raffle. Tickets are $30 and available at the door. Members of the special needs community are welcome to attend for free. Proceeds from the event will support the vital programs that SNAP delivers for individuals with developmental disabilities who live in this area. SNAP is especially grateful for the support of the Community Endowment of Lexington and the Mass Cultural Council.
