Maggie Would Love It

At age 14, Maggie Nawyn is already a concert pianist.  This is amazing in itself, but there’s more.  Maggie has a dream.  She wants to perform with other kids.  She wants a youth symphony in the quiet town of Brigham City, Utah.

There is a wonderful old building in Brigham City called the Christensen Academy of Music and Dancing.  It was once home to a thriving dance company.   The city wants to restore the building,  but lack the funds.  Maggie has joined forces with the city and local businesses.  She needs to raise $1,000,000.  The city and other donors will match her efforts.
Maggie had a fundraiser last August, a concert with lots of Utah talent.  It was a start.  The next concert, a celebration of the Academy’s 110th anniversary and a tribute to the Christensen brothers is planned for June 22, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.
What are you doing on June 22?  Can I interest you in some concert tickets?
For more information, or to make a donation, contact the Academy Square Foundation:
Roger Manning, President (435) 734-9366,  email: rdmanning8a4@gmail.com

 You could make a difference, and Maggie would love it.
