The music group "Raise the Bar" was created by Mick Quinn – musician/singer and qualified working special Ed teacher, to provide a social network and creative outlet for youth with differing abilities and their families.
"Raise the Bar" perform a range of popular songs, with members participating at their own individual level . It is very interactive – whether by singing, percussive beat and rhythm, dancing or simply quiet enjoyment. The focus of the group being - teamwork, fun and socialisation.
Concerts/social nights are held every 2 months at the same venue. This is a wonderful opportunity for group members to perform in front of family, friends and other community groups. Parents get to unwind, have a few drinks and enjoy a range of local entertainment including the successes of their son or daughter, as well as socializing with other families in their community.
We call on the three (3) levels of government to form a combined joint funding initiative for the purpose of enabling the continuance of the ‘Raise the Bar’ disability music group.
Its founder and operator Mick Quinn has been unable to continue the program due to current work and family commitments.
The funding initiative would enable Mr. Quinn to operate this vital program on a full-time basis and therefore continue a much-needed service in our local community.
The Support Raise The Bar petition to Local, State & Federal Governments was written by Raise The Bar and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
