Doctors in Recitals Announces 2018 Recipients

Doctors in Recital, an annual charitable event organized by the Brown County Medical Society, has announced the recipients of its 2018 concert proceeds. The 2018 Community Partner is the Positive Parenting Program offered by ASPIRO; the Music Education Co-Recipients are the Creative Skills class at Green Bay Area Public Schools’ Washington Middle School, and Music for the Sake Of Music. Ordinarily, the proceeds are split 80-20 between an area nonprofit serving the community, and an area music education program. This year, however, its Board decided to benefit one community partner and two music education recipients, using the same 80-20 split. 


One of eight programs, ASPIRO's Positive Parenting Program (PPP) is an in-home visitation program serving families headed by parents with intellectual disabilities. PPP was the first of its kind in the state when it began in 1985, and remains the only program of its kind in Brown County.


The Creative Skills class at Washington Middle School is one of the music education recipients. The grant will be used to purchase Orff instruments for the unique needs of students with intellectual, emotional and/or physical disabilities.


MFSOM is a not-for-profit music organization whose mission is to provide northeast Wisconsin with diverse opportunities for the creation and enjoyment of music at a high level. Their growing summer music program provides daily instrumental lessons for area youth and community members free of charge. This program also offers a variety of group classes and chamber ensemble opportunities as well as large ensemble experiences for talented high school, community and professional musicians.


The 2018 performance will be at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts at 7 p.m. on Saturday, January 20, 2018. Tickets will go on sale this autumn.
