Cannon School senior to host Beatles-themed concert to benefit MusicalMinds

Rachel Dyl of Davidson, a senior at Cannon School, is hosting “An Evening with the Beatles” on Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. at River Run Country Club to benefit the non-profit organization MusicalMinds. MusicalMinds seeks to inspire social change through classical music instruction to young people in need in northern Mecklenburg County.
The night will consist of musical arrangements from jazz to classical performed by local musicians, refreshments, a live auction and the opportunity to change lives of children. To buy tickets, view sponsorship opportunities, or make a donation, visit www.musicalmindsnc.org.
Dyl began playing the piano at 6 and the violin at 8, fueling her passion for music.
“I am inspired to support MusicalMinds because music is an important part of my life, and I want to make sure other kids have an opportunity to make it part of theirs,” Dyl says. “My goal is to give children in our area the opportunity to have music permeate their lives and provide structure, focus, but most importantly, freedom of expression.”
Dyl’s collaboration with MusicalMinds is part of her Capstone Project, which is completed by all Cannon School seniors. The Capstone Project has two major requirements: the project’s topic must be personally meaningful to the student, and the project must contribute in an authentic way to the well-being of at least one other person. Each student composes a 20-page paper — half research essay and half reflection — on the subject of his or her project and delivers a presentation during the school’s senior week in April.
