West Palm Beach’s Kravis Center recently announced a new program to provide students from underserved communities the opportunity to experience an evening of live music featuring American classics performed by Michael Feinstein, featured performers and the Kravis Center Pops Orchestra. 

The program is called Michael Feinstein’s Youth Ticketing Fund and will cover the cost for local students to attend up to three performances scheduled this season. These include "Michael Feinstein Conducts the Kravis Center Pops Orchestra: An Evening of Cole Porter" on Jan. 31; "Michael Feinstein with the Kravis Center Pops Orchestra Big Band: Sinatra and Friends" on Feb. 28; and "Michael Feinstein Conducts the Kravis Center Pops Orchestra: First Ladies of Song Including Judy, Peggy & Ella" with a special 90th birthday celebration for and starring Marilyn Maye and featuring Storm Large on March 13.
