PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There was a celebration of Martin Luther King Junior’s life at The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. It was a chance for young children to not only get a glimpse of his legacy, but start to think about how they can contribute to society through music.
Carol Frazier, manager of education at the Kimmel Center, says she looks forward to this program every year which featuring singers, dancers and musicians.
“We have the opportunity to feature so many of our young performers who are in our local schools. [We] also have students who have been in our programs come back after finishing college and still continue to give back,” says Frazier.
She says that is what this program is all about.
“And that’s so very important, to dare to be ambitious and to know they can reach out for what it is they really want to do and it gives me a great deal of joy to be one of those people that can offer that opportunity to help them,” says Frazier.
Students can enroll in free musical programs at the Kimmel Center through their schools.
