Community Music Center of Boston – Strings in the Community

The Music Center graciously accepted a number of violins and cellos through a matching grant from Classics for Kids. These instruments have been used in the 2015-2016 school year at a number of Boston Public Schools (BPS), through various programming orchestrated by the Music Center and by our individual students. A memorable event included “Stringfest” where  about 40 students from two Boston Public Schools (Adams School in East Boston and Russel School in Dorchester) gathered at the Music Center in the South End to rehearse and perform after a year of instruction on the instruments through our School Outreach Program. Music Center alumni mentored these students in rehearsals during the day.

Prior to this year, the instruments were used at additional BPS Schools including schools in Roxbury, Jamaica Plain and in our SummerMUSIC program which includes students representing 10 area schools.
