Rosie's House

Saturday night we attended a soiree where students from Rosie’s House performed. Rosie’s House: A Music Academy for Children offers a full range of instrumental and voice lessons for children ages 5 to 18. Their mission is to provide under-served youth of greater Phoenix with the gift of music which enhances their daily lives by providing direction, stability, and tools for future success.

Marcia Fine, our hostess, who donates to Rosie’s House in her late father’s name. Her dad, George Blumenthal, was a lifelong musician. Marcia is the author of a Holocaust book called Paper Children, as well as a few other books. Driven by cataclysmic world events, the Paper Children story encompasses the lives of three generations of women.

The event was at Pangea Gallery and Scent Floral in old Scottsdale. The students were excellent, particularly a young girl who sang the song “Heroes” and brought me and other attendees to tears. We filmed the event and will post it soon.
