Support free performing arts experiences for preschoolers
This campaign has concluded, but if you would like to still make a gift to support the Lied Center, please visit www.lied.ku.edu/donate.
Make an impact on our youngest performing arts’ lovers. Your donation will help fund the Lied Center’s Performing Arts 3to5 for the next three seasons. This program brings area preschoolers to the Lied Center stage for a performance interaction, created especially for them by a world-class artist.
Performing Arts 3to5 is one of the first performing arts opportunities these preschoolers experience. It introduces them to instruments, song, dance and music in a fun and accessible environment that lays the foundation for a future rich in the arts and learning. Studies have shown that performing arts experiences early in life affect the academic achievement and social development of children and youth.
They have a positive impact on:
- Reading and language skills
- Mathematics skills
- Thinking and social skills
- Motivation to learn
Thank you for supporting the youngest members of our community.
