Spreading Music Education

Weekend Festival Overview

Rock to the Future kicked off the start of the summer season by promoting and performing at two exciting music festivals.

Firefly Music Festival

From June 18th to the 21st RTTF’s founding director, Jessica and development director, Katie were in attendance at Firefly Music Festival to reach a new demographic of supporters.  We were lucky to share a tent with Barring Eyewear, a new local startup company in Philadelphia. Barring Eyewear is a great supporter of RTTF and decided to donate proceeds from their product sales to help our cause. We are intensely grateful for their kindness, support, and donation. Firefly Music Festival allowed us to reach new people who share a common interest with us; a love for music. We gave over 400 promotional materials to the festival goers!. In addition we expanded our contact list of people who want to support our cause. Attending Firefly Music Festival was a great experience for us. Can’t wait for Firefly 2016!

Clark Park Music and Art Festival

This past Saturday, Rock to the Future teamed up with Clark Park for their 44th (45th?) annual Summer Music and Art Festival.  Members of the Philadelphia community were treated to an all-day event filled with an assortment of unique vendors, delicious food stands and trucks, and of course, an eclectic line-up of talented local musicians. Included in the mix were two of Rock to the Future’s student bands.  Alex, Jarod, Katherine, Luna, and Toni of Viva La Pluto and Lily, Regina, Riordan, and Sam of Big Neon Spoon rocked the stage with their original songs and covers of popular tunes.  RTTF staff was also busy making music shakers with some of the younger festival-goers and spreading the word about our summer camps and after school programs. We are looking forward to partnering with Clark Park again for their Fall Festival on September 19th!
