Our Mission

To bring people from different cultures together to use music to change the world by:

  • funding scholarships to participate in educational programs and live performances for promising young people from the United States and internationally, who may not otherwise have access, especially young people of color;
  • funding choirs and orchestras from around the world – especially from underrepresented cultures and financially deprived individuals – who wish to participate in festivals, concerts and workshops;
  • funding cultural diplomacy programs for orchestras and choirs as they travel the world;
  • creating a series of safe, live performance opportunities during challenging times, such as COVID-19, engaging a diverse roster of professional musicians across a wide range of genres
