High Meadow School
On Sunday, September 22nd, four renowned Hudson Valley family music performers will join forces for Raise the Roof Too, an afternoon of music-making, community, and fun at High Meadow School. The lineup features two-time Grammy nominee Elizabeth Mitchell, Dog on Fleas – led by Grammy winner Dean Jones – and Sirius/XM hitmakers Ratboy Jr and Uncle Rock. Other highlights include face painting, games, and locally sourced concessions. All proceeds will benefit the construction of High Meadow’s Jesse Kolber Music Center.
The first Raise the Roof fundraiser, held in December 2018, began the process of realizing the dream of beloved musician, teacher, and entrepreneur Jesse Kolber, who passed away from cancer in 2017. The son of High Meadow Head of School Susan Paynter, Kolber was a SUNY Purchase graduate who championed underserved children in particular, and was a driving force for music as a means of connection and community. Raise the Roof Too continues that mission.
In the Jesse Kolber Music Center, students from High Meadow and the larger community will be able to compose, perform, record, and enjoy diverse forms of music. The project reflects High Meadow’s commitment to providing its pre-K through 8th Grade students with a rich performing-arts curriculum.
