The Second Hand Opera presents: An Evening with the Honeydogs

Vega Productions and the Second Hand Opera Artist Collective present a night of music and collaborative creation featuring The Honeydogs, Bomba De Luz, and Fairfax, AK to raise money for music education in Minnesota.
A portion of the proceeds of this event will go to charity.
Vega Productions' mission is to advocate for, support and provide children and youth with equal access to quality music and art education. Since forming in 2005, Vega Productions has provided more than 30,000 students with the opportunity to participate in music and art programs across Minnesota (see map of past support). Vega Productions, Inc. is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.

From its inception, Vega Productions has secured donated instruments and distributed them to students that qualify for free-or-reduced lunch and schools where music budgets have been slashed. This has been done manually through the use of volunteer labor. However, as the need has grown because of budget cuts in schools, it has become increasingly challenging to keep up with the demand.

Vega Productions, in partnership with Software for Good, has created a resource to help combat this crisis. Instruments in the Cloud is a cloud-based website that will assist school districts and music instructors in providing instruments to students in financial need. Instruments in the Cloud allows users (music teachers and administration) to easily catalog and manage existing instrument inventories, add newly purchased or donated instruments, search for available instruments from surrounding schools and request those instruments for their students who cannot afford to purchase or rent. It also acts as a portal for instrument donors to connect directly with schools so they can easily donate their used instrument to a school near them.

Instruments in the Cloud creates an inter-connected community of schools, music instructors and individual instrument donors that can work collaboratively to provide the opportunity for every student to participate in music education.
