Starting in 2023 we will be partnering locally with Education Through Music and Mirror Image Arts to develop growth programs in the Denver area which use music, movement and applied theatre to coach young people in the greater Denver metro area toward a better, more productive and fulfilling life.
These programs and scholarships are dedicated to Linda Susan Bochatey who spent most of her years coaching young people in piano, voice, general music, as well as all forms theatre, even melodrama, which she loved. Many of her young students have found themselves as adults becoming sound engineers, voice artists, studio musicians, public speakers, salespeople, lawyers, and teachers because she spent the time to encourage and coach them toward confidence and often to find their own voice in whatever field eventually became open to them.
We are looking for local artists to promote, speak, and demonstrate how music, dance, and theatre training in their young lives helped them grow up. Whether you are a teacher, professional or amateur artist, we would like to hear from you. If you have a story to tell that would encourage someone, please email it to us to share. If you have an instrument to donate, email us. If you would like to perform at a nearby school to share your love of music, dance or theatre, please email us. If you would like to help us organize, direct, or coach music, dance or theatre, email us. We are here to build a community that will raise up young people so they can grow beyond all they were going to be.
While the program is young, we hope these efforts will develop to keep arts in the schools and also support private lessons in all forms of music, dance and theatre. Please email us or fill out an application if you would like to get involved.
