    This past Saturday on June 8th, the Project Eagle team organized their fundraising walk in Dean park to raise funds for the non-profit organization called "Snehawan". Around 40+ registered participants enjoyed the great weather, good company and delectable snacks after the refreshing walk. It was a morning well spent for good health and good cause. The event was a grand success and raised over $1000 for Snehwan.

    The Project Eagle is a group of few volunteers from Shrewsbury MA USA who support Snehwan through various fundraising initiatives for the past 10 years. Through the Project Eagle fundraising efforts, Snehawan gets a steady stream of small funds every month for tutors fees. Apart from that Project Eagle has also donated  school supply kits & other equipment such as cameras for Snehwan students in the past. ( Snehawan is a  non-profit organization founded by Ashok Deshmane in December 2015. It is based near Alandi, Pune. Their aim is to create a nurturing and inclusive learning environment for the less fortunate children of farmers and poor families.

     .  .The Project Eagle Team has  been consistently working on many interesting fundraising  initiatives to help raise funds not only for Snehawan but also other non-profits back home in India as well as here locally in Massachusetts. Few years ago, the Project Eagle team had organized a Marathi Musical Program called 'Sur-Kavita as a fundraiser which was very well received by the local community.Other initiatives include bake sales during holidays of specialty cookies and brownies. Cake and bakery products are sold throughout the year on the need basis for various occasions with 100% sale proceeds going to non-profits. Team also makes and sells art items like greeting cards and paintings at various art festivals or again on a need basis. They have also held paint nights and fundraising walks like this past week. Most of the funds also get a matching donation from the employers of the volunteers, like Intel Corporation, Dell, BCBS etc. 

    Thanks to all Snehwan supporters & donors from Shrewsbury area for their continued support.

    Vijay Gupta is playing his last concert this year at Mechanics Hall, Nov 10th. Vijay is not only an astonishing violinist, a star in the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the outgoing artist-in-residence at Music Worcester, but a humanist who should serve as a model for all of us. In his visits here, he has organized music playing -- and performing -- at the Worcester County House of Corrections in addition to his work in the prison system in LA, as well as with the homeless. I've had the enormous pleasure of getting to know him personally, and he is simply a remarkable individual.

    Please see these links – , -- 

    It will also include extraordinary compositions by his wife Reena, dancing, an orchestra and chorus, and it looks incredible. Other concerts on the above link will also be inspiring. After nearly 30 years on the board of Music Worcester, I just retired this week, but I can't resist pushing for this exceptional concert.

    About Vijay Gupta

    Vijay Gupta is a violinist, speaker and citizen-artist dedicated to creating spaces of wholeness through music. Vijay’s work embodies his belief that the work of artists and citizens is one: to make a adhana – daily practice – of the world we envision. Hailed by The New Yorker as a “visionary violinist…one of the most radical thinkers in the unradical world of American classical music,” Vijay leads a protean career as a thought leader, performer, collaborator and communicator.

    Vijay is the founder and Artistic Director of Street Symphony, a community of musicians creating spaces of connection for people in reentry from homelessness, addiction and incarceration in Los Angeles. Vijay is also a cofounder of the Skid Row Arts Alliance, a consortium dedicated to creating art for – and with – the largest homeless community in America. For his work in “bringing beauty, respite, and purpose to those all too often ignored by society”, Vijay was the recipient of a 2018 MacArthur Fellowship. A riveting speaker, Vijay has shared his work with dozens of corporations, campuses, conferences and communities across America over the past 10 years, including The Richmond Forum, The Aspen Institute, Hallmark, Accenture, Mayo Clinic, US Psychiatric Congress, American Planning Association, and the League of American Orchestras, just to name a few. Vijay delivered the 33rd annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy for Americans for the Arts and his 2010 TED Talk, “Music is Medicine, Music is Sanity”, has garnered millions of views. Vijay has performed as an international recitalist, soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral musician for over 20 years, playing his solo debut with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Zubin Mehta. Vijay was a member of the first violin section of the Los Angeles Philharmonic for 12 years, and has collaborated with the Kronos Quartet, the Philharmonia Orchestra of London, Yo-Yo Ma, and appears regularly with the Strings Festival in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. A dynamic recording artist, Vijay recently released Breathe, an album of the piano chamber music of Reena Esmail, under his own label. His solo violin album When the Violin, a solo violin album featuring the music of Esmail, J. S. Bach, and Esa-Pekka Salonen will be available on Bandcamp in June 2021. Vijay currently serves as the Senior Artistic and Programs Advisor for Young Musicians Foundation. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Marist College, and a Master’s in Music from the Yale School of Music. His principal teachers have included Ani Kavafian and Glenn Dicterow. Vijay plays a 2010 violin made by Los Angeles-based luthier Eric Benning, and can be found on Instagram @guptaviolin.
