GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE AND PLAY – April 23rd 2015
On April 23rd, 2015, the El Dorado Community Foundation will join Tahoe Arts Project, along with dozens of non-profits in Eldorado county, in a 24 hour giving challenge. This event is a celebration of giving by many donors which will not just bring additional funding, but increased awareness of the nonprofit sector who work tirelessly to make our community a better place. Giving challenges are sparking excitement in many regions just like ours and have raised millions.
The El Dorado Community Foundation has been planning and preparing our version of the National Day of Giving, named GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE, and designed exclusively for our own community of El Dorado County. This virtual event will showcase El Dorado County nonprofits and give you an opportunity to support them by “funding a need”.
“Todd Green began studying guitar at the age of ten. He has been writing and performing his own music professionally since the age of fifteen. He studied composition and arrangement at Berklee College of Music, in Boston, Mass. At the same time he was studying privately with Mick Goodrich, jazz guitar legend at New England Conservatory of Music, Pat Metheny, Grammy Award winning guitarist and George Benson, international recording star. After spending five years in Boston, he moved to New York City where he performed with the top echelon of studio musicians and toured with bands throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.
While in New York, he began studying Western Flute, East Indian Bansuri Bamboo Flute (with Steve Gorn), and Tablas (Indian hand drums) with Ray Spiegel. At the time that he relocated to Western Montana,Todd decided to stop playing the electric guitar and concentrate on acoustic music. After spending 10 years there his next move was to Northern Nevada near Lake Tahoe where he has lived since 2001. Recently the electric guitar has reappeared and, as of the Fall 2012 concert season, will once again be part of his musical landscape.
Todd now performs nationally as a multi-instrumental solo artist in the college and fine arts markets. Frequently, along with his concerts, Todd conducts college master classes and interactive school clinics and assemblies. His columns on improvisation have been published in Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine.”

Diane Ferlatte is an internationally renowned storyteller, who has traveled the globe, from Europe to Singapore & Malaysia, from Australia & New Zealand to Colombia and Senegal, Kenya, South Africa, and of course all over the United States. She believes that telling and listening to each other’s stories not only enables us to learn about each other, but also to understand each other better. She views storytelling as a traditional art form that can promote literacy, imagination, and values in the young. While emphasizing African American stories, she loves to tell stories that hold truths touching upon our common humanity, including personal stories as well as many tales from across the globe. Having a background in music as well as American Sign Language, Diane frequently incorporates both into her performances. Erik Pearson, her musical sidekick, will accompany Diane on banjo & guitar.
Diane will be performing in the South Shore Elementary Schools January 26-30. More information about her schools schedule is available here.
Kealoha is the first Poet Laureate of Hawaii. As an internationally acclaimed poet and storyteller. He has performed throughout the world — from the White House to the `Iolani Palace, from Brazil to Switzerland. He is the first poet in Hawaii’s history to perform at a governor’s inauguration, and in 2010 he was selected as a master artist for a National Endowment for the Arts program. He has represented Hawaii at the National Poetry Slam, and was ranked in the top ten of the nation’s best poets in 2007 and was honored as a “National Slam Legend” in 2010. He is the founder of HawaiiSlam, Youth Speaks Hawaii (2-Time International Champions), and First Thursdays (the largest registered slam poetry competition in the world with an average attendance of 500+). Kealoha has served as Hawaii’s SlamMaster since 2003, and has been on the Artists in the Schools roster since 2005. He graduated with honors from MIT with a degree in Nuclear Physics (and a minor in writing), served as a business consultant in San Francisco, and played around as a surf instructor prior to becoming a professional poet in 2002.
Kealoha will perform at South Tahoe Middle School and South Tahoe High School on January 29 and 30. More information about his school schedule is available here.
