Notable Excitement-30 Years of Music

For Music at Kohl Mansion

In 2012, the Hind Foundation granted $2,500 to Music at Kohl Mansion to contribute to the research, preparation, writing, design, printing, distribution and marketing of  "Notable Excitement," a 125-page paperback book describing and celebraing the organization's 30 year history. Inspired by the belief that the arts strengthen communities, Music at Kohl Mansion presents world-class chamber concerts in the historic Kohl Mansion and music education in public schools on the San Francisco Peninsula.  It is the only such classical series on the upper Peninsula with outreach to the schools and internationally known performers. The book captures the history of the series, the dedication of staff and volunteers, and the importance of the Music at Kohl mission. To produce the book, interviews were conducted with loyal audience members, musicians, staff and board members in order to reflect the true excitement and creativity the concerts have generated.

Noteworthy Outcomes

•    Revenue Opportunity
The book has the potential to be sold and shared with subscribers, prospective donors, individual, corporate and foundation, as well as other music lovers and those interested in the history of the area.

•    Remembering the Past to Move Forward
Highlighting the organization's history and discussing its lessons learned will aid in its future vitality, and will guide others involved in presenting the arts.
