I can’t imagine how excited the students at Wagner High School on Staten Island must have been today! I really admire Tony and Susan for their dedication to arts education in the public schools.

Tony Bennett and Susan Benedetto’s foundation, Exploring the Arts, is making a huge impact on arts students in East Los Angeles. Tony and Susan were featured on the local CBS station today when they visited one of the schools that ETA is supporting.
As someone who greatly benefited from an excellent public school arts education in music and theater and taught at an Arts Magnet School in Dallas Texas, I can state unequivocally that the work they are doing is beyond important for high school students. Please consider a making a donation to Exploring the Arts; every little bit helps.
The Year of Tony Bennett supports Exploring the Arts and hopes that you will support this organization as well. Founded by Tony Bennett and Susan Benedetto in 1999, Exploring the Arts supports arts education in public schools. ETA recently completed construction of the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Astoria, NY, a public school for arts students.
From now until January 14, any gift you make will be matched by another donor, making your gift go even further.
I was lucky enough to receive excellent musical education as a young person. Even though I did not become a professional musician, studying music and participating in bands and orchestras has been a fundamental and important aspect of my life in many ways, not the least of which is a lifelong love of music.
Please consider making a contribution to this fine organization. You can easily contribute online at www.exploringthearts.org.
Tonight is the annual gala for ETA. Looks like a great event for an even greater cause.
Excellent wrap-up article about the gala, which raised $1.2 million!
