Chase Kowalski was a lightning fast 7-year-old who loved all sports and had an incredible competitive spirit.

He was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in 2012, but that spirit lives on through his family and friends and the foundation set up in his name, which is run by an amazing woman – his mother, Rebecca Kowalski.

On Sunday, June 4 at the Palace Theater in Waterbury, Connecticut there will be a special fundraiser for the CMAK Foundation, called Chasing the Music. It will feature performances from members of the New York Philharmonic, led by principal cellist Carter Brey.
