A very good friend of ours, Daniel DeLos Reyes is embarking on an incredible project set to open Summer 2015! The project is called DayGLOW Music it will certainly be a gift to many, for years to come. Here’s a page from their website:
Welcome to DayGLOW Music
The mission of DayGLOW Music™ is to incorporate percussion instruments, rhythms from around the world, dance, and vocals into a natural backdrop inspiring youth to work together with respect and appreciation for one another. Through group participation and teamwork, participants will nurture harmony and creativity.
About DayGLOW Music
The spirit and creativity that has been Daniel’s constant since childhood, combined with years of amassed knowledge and his inherent passion for music, have brought DayGLOWMusic™ to fruition and rendered this incredible concept a part of his reality. Nestled in the picturesque community of Fayetteville, GA, DayGLOW will serve as the basis of a development and training center incorporating music, specifically percussion instruments, as the main tools in an innovative youth music education and development facility.
As awareness of DayGLOW grows, more and more people and companies are taking notice and becoming active participants in bringing this educational facility to life. One of the first to take an interest was Caterpillar, a household name as an industry leader in building and construction equipment that has been instrumental in clearing the way (literally) for what will serve as the pathways to a variety of musical experiences for DayGLOW participants as they relate to both rhythm and instruments as well as a deeper understanding of the culture from which they originate.
How You Can Help
Scheduled to open in the summer of 2015, Daniel’s DayGLOW Music™ will initially focus on small groups of 6 to 10 high school-aged youths from the south metro Atlanta area with defined musical interests and ability. The ultimate goal will be to grow the center to incorporate larger groups of different ages and abilities.
In addition to funding the core curricula, there is still a fair amount of work to be done in readying the land for DayGLOW’s first group of students. From the installation of the sound equipment to the preparation of the tranquil landscape, a tremendous amount of sweat (and some tears) has and will continue to be put forth in bringing this to fruition.
The kindness of our supporters will be essential as the project nears completion and beyond. Please stay tuned for additional information on how you can help, whether by way of your generous donations or as physical volunteers.
