I sent this out late last night to the many extremely talented and experienced folks who ahve contacted us since the NPR story aired:
Dear Friends of MusicianCorps,
Thank you for contacting us. We’ve been blown away by the widespread, grassroots response to NPR’s recent story on “All Things Considered” (“MusicianCorps May Strike Right Tone for Obama:” http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=97963041).
SInce last week, we’ve heard from hundreds of talented and committed people from across the nation and all walks of life –– musicians and artists, Peace Corps and AmeriCorps volunteers, current and retired public school teachers, creative arts therapists, college students, and more –– who believe that MusicianCorps can change lives and the world for the better.
While we haven’t been able to respond to most of you individually yet, I wanted to let you know that I, or someone on our team, will be in touch soon. Thank you again for your inspiring stories and encouragement; we look forward to working together to make Music National Service a reality in America.
