Worcester Chamber Music Receives $15K from Mass Music Initiative

Friday, September 04, 2015

 

Worcester Chamber Music Society has announced that they have received a $15,000 grant for its Neighborhood Strings program from the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s SerHacer Community Music Initiative.

Neighborhood Strings, the Music Society's newest music education program, offers free lessons to Worcester's youth in the Main South and Downtown neighborhoods. The program seeks to provide under-served youth with music-making and community opportunities.

This fall, Neighborhood Strings will expand to a second site at Seven Hills Charter Public School.

SerHacer (To be, To make) supports a growing number of intensive, ensemble-based music programs that use music as a vehicle for youth development and social change. Through grants, technical assistance, and project support the MCC will foster this emerging field of music making in the Commonwealth.
