KING Concert Live Stream

By: Laurie Gallardo

A bit of insight into the work put into Kids In A New Groove: The Austin nonprofit provides youth in foster care with mentorship through musical education and instruction. Though it’s undeniably exciting to see budding musicians learn to write a song or master a guitar, the decision-making skills and strategizing that come with it all are beneficial for youth in the long run.

To continue raising awareness of this work, Kids In A New Groove presents their ongoing KING Concert series. This week features an artist who performed at one of their KING Concerts two years ago, longtime Austin Music Minute favorite David Ramirez.

Catch the next KING Concert live stream show with Ramirez at 5:30 p.m. Central tomorrow, Wednesday August 12, on the Kids In A New Groove Facebook page. You can also make donations at this link to show your support.
