The fundraising event kicks off their concert campaign to raise
$500,000 to keep the Opus 118 music program running

New York, NY May 11, 2010 The powerful sound of urban rock music will come alive on Thursday, May 13, 2010 at El Museo Del Barrio in New York City, when internationally renown violin duo Nuttin’ But Stringz host the opening Honors Recital for Opus 118 Harlem School of Music. The platinum selling violinists, who were recently featured on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and MTV Unplugged with Trey Songz, have become the champion spokespersons of the non-profit organization.

Opus 118 transforms the lives of students and their families of the Harlem community, through access to quality music education while fostering teacher development and introducing musical performance to new audiences. “Opus 118 has experienced significant challenges in securing the funding needed to sustain the organization” said Damien Escobar, Nuttin’ But Stringz.  Damien noted he was inspired by the efforts of Roberta Guaspari who co-founded the non-profit organization to inspire the youth of Harlem.

In 1991, public school budget cuts eliminated arts programs, but Guaspari and her students fought for their program. They rallied community support and held a benefit concert at Carnegie Hall, with some of the world’s finest musicians to raise funds to keep the program open for nearly 20 years. Unfortunately, the program faces the same struggles during these economic times. With the help of Nuttin’ But Stringz, Opus 118 will kick of their Concert Campaign to raise half a million dollars and hopefully keep the program open for another 20 years.

“Opus 118 has seen a fair share of challenges through the years, but struggle parallels our humble beginnings,” said Robert Gondola, director of external relations.  “This year marks Opus 118’s 19th year and with the help of generous donors, we will not only make it to a 20th year, but [Opus 118] will be in a position to sustain for many more years to come.”

“Our mission is far from accomplished,” explained Gondola. “There is so much left to do, and we need people to lend a hand to preserve the educational treasure that is Opus 118 in a neighborhood that needs it more than ever.”

Unfortunately, after more than a decade, Opus 118 finds itself in the same predicament battling through turbulent economic times. “Sometimes passion and drive are all you need.” said Tourie Escobar, “When my brother and I heard [Opus 118] was facing closure we felt motivated to help.”

Nuttin’ But Stringz is no stranger to giving back to the community. They brought music lovers to their feet last month (April 26, 2010) at the American Heart Association’s Power to End Stroke movement. The initiative took place at the Hobby Center’s Zilkha Hall in Houston, and empowered people to reduce their risk for stroke and educate communities on the importance of its prevention.

The Opus 118 Honors Recital on Thursday May 13, 2010, will begin at 6:00 pm with a cocktail hour, followed by a 7:00 pm performance. The newly renovated museum galleries will also be open exclusively for Opus 118 supporters.

Urban Rock Violin Duo Nuttin’ But Stringz signs on to become spokespersons for Opus 118, Harlem School of Music In New York

“We were inspired by Roberta Guaspari who used her God given talent to inspire others,” said Damien Escobar of  Nuttin’ But Stringz, who plans to bring awareness to the financial obstacle faced by Opus 118

New York, NY April 28, 2010 Nuttin’ But Stringz, international urban rock violin duo brothers Damien and Tourie Escobar announced today that they have signed on as the spokespersons for Opus 118, Harlem School of Music to help prevent it’s closure during these economic times. Opus 118 transforms the lives of students and their families of the Harlem community, through access to quality music education while fostering teacher development and introducing musical performance to new audiences. Since 1991 Opus 118 has helped over 5,000 students achieve through quality music instruction.

Current Parent, Jesi Kelley shares her reaction to the news:

“It’s so important for urban kids, particularly minority kids to see another way to live, to know that such a thing as “practice” and working towards something can actually mean something. It’s PARTICULARLY important for urban minority boys to know there is another way “out” than to be a hip hop star or a gangsta rapper who curses; that cursing is not essential to success. And… it’s another avenue other than the usual basketball (football not so much only because, particularly in NYC there ARE VERY FEW places kids can actually play). The beautiful thing about NBS is that they actually went to college… to Julliard no less.

“They are GREAT role models for the Opus kids,” said Parent Jesi Kelley. ” Heck, they have inspired my non-practicing kid to work out ‘Broken Sorrow’ all on his own… the song has notes and a key that he hasn’t played before. In a 4:30 minute song, he’s about half way through. That’s a really big deal.”

“Opus 118 has experienced significant challenges in securing the funding necessary to sustain the organization” says Damien Escobar, Nuttin’ But Stringz.

Damien says he was inspired by the efforts of Roberta Guaspari, co-founder of Opus 118, who entered the community of Harlem in 1981 with very little teaching experience and a lot of passion. In 1991, public school budget cuts eliminated arts programs, but Guaspari and her students fought for their program and held a benefit concert at Carnegie Hall. Her story would later be featured in films like ‘Music of the Heart’, starring Meryl Streep.

Unfortunately, after over a decade, Opus 118 finds itself in the same situation searching for funding to stay open. “Sometimes passion and drive is all you need.” says Tourie Escobar, “When my brother and I heard [Opus 118] was facing closure we felt motivated to help.” Ironically, younger brother Damien was asked to audition for the movie ‘Music of the Heart’. “I was asked to play the violin for that movie 12 years ago,” says Damien. “I was attending Julliard School of music so I missed the audition. But, I won’t miss the chance now to help out.”

Nuttin’ But Stringz is no stranger to giving back to the community. They brought music lovers to their feet Friday night (April 26, 2010) at the Hobby Center’s Zilkha Hall, in Houston for a benefit of the American Heart Association’s Power to End Stroke movement, an initiative that empowers people to reduce their risk for stroke and educates communities on the importance of its prevention.

As the spokespersons for Opus 118, Nuttin’ But Stringz has made it a priority to continue to give back and bring awareness to Opus 118’s fight to stay open. Beginning May 13th, at El Museo Del Barrio in New York City, NBS will host Opus 118’s Opening Honors Recital, which will kick off their concert campaign to raise $500,000 to keep the program running. Historically, Opus 118 has not had access to the resources that others may have had—“it has always been a fight for us to survive,” said Robert Gondola, Director of External Relations. “Opus 118 has seen a fair share of challenges through the years, but struggle parallels our humble beginnings. This year marks Opus 118’s 19th year and with the help of generous donors, will be in a position to sustain for many more years to come.”

“Our mission is far from accomplished,” explained Gondola. “There is so much left to do, and we need people to lend a hand to preserve the educational treasure that is Opus 118 in a neighborhood that needs it more than ever.”

The Honors Recital will begin at 6:00 pm with a cocktail hour, followed by a 7:00 pm performance. The newly renovated museum galleries will also be open exclusively for Opus 118 supporters.
