DOVER, Del.- A small building on South Kirkwood Street in Dover is full of music, but the Inner-City Cultural League has outgrown its home there.

They are hoping to build a new facility.

"We'll be able to reach out to the community and let the community have something to do to find a way to express themselves, instead of expressing themselves in violent ways," said Kimberly Gladney.

But a new building is expensive and that's where the groups children's orchestra comes in. They'll be playing a concert Saturday night to help fundraise for the nearly $400,000 building.

"It's a positive influence for inner-city children, it means more programs and influence for them to focus on their studies, maybe a mentoring program," Brittany Alson said.

Families say a bigger space would get more of the community involved.

"I think a lot more children would come and be more involved because they see the few that are here now and love it and come consistently," Kathy Theodoraos said.

Tickets for the concert are $10 and can be purchased at 54 South Kirkwood St. in Dover.
