A Plugged In Benefit Concert for the West Suburban Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning Youth
Plugged In is a non-profit teen rock band program dedicated to showing young artists how to make positive social change through their music. In addition to intensive weekly band classes, song-writing workshops, and community performances, we produce three benefit concerts annually, at which Plugged In students perform to raise money for various charitable organizations and causes chosen by the students. Plugged In provides a nurturing, supportive community for young artists looking for a sense of belonging, a safe place to express themselves and an ego free, competition free environment in which they can use their creative talents to help others.
On July 27, 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Plugged In’s Summer Session students and staff will be rocking and rolling to raise funds for the West Suburban Alliance for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning Youth (WAGLY: http://www.wagly.org). WAGLY’s mission is to support the social, emotional, and physical well-being of GLBTQ high school youth and allies in the Metro West Boston area by creating and sustaining social and educational programs through peer leadership and adult guidance. WAGLY programs include weekly activities that connect GLBTQ youth and allies, a monthly program called UMBRELLA, specifically for youth who identify as transgender or gender variant and informative resources and referral services for GLBTQ youth and their parents or adult supporters.
The event will be at Powers Hal, l1471 Highland Avenue. Needham, MA 02492.
Admission is $5 for students, $10 for seniors, $20 for adults.
