LEADERSHIP

Mentors & Staff

IN URBAN AREAS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, community music schools realize a broad mission of music education for all through a multitude of programs. These beloved institutions — some more than a century old — provide as many roles in the lives of those they touch as there are kinds of students who attend them. For many, a community music school is the place to pursue music beyond opportunities offered at home, school, or church; where they can meet others like themselves with common interests, struggles, hopes. It can be a safe place where they know they will meet friends. It can be the place where their dreams come alive.

This effort is founded on the Richmond Symphony’s 60-year-old youth orchestra program — acclaimed throughout the region — and on its long and multifaceted partnerships with Central Virginia’s public school music educators. It is our hope to build your community music school together with you. Together, we will dream the school that brings all kinds of music to all people, from childhood to adulthood. Together, we will build the school that will realize this dream for generations to come.
