Who We Support
Side by Side
Music Foundation grants provide children one-on-one experiences with professional musicians.
My experience with Side by Side was incredible. I have been doing this program for three years (since freshman year) and I have had so much fun each and everyone time. Mary Costanza is my private instructor for cello, but the fact that I get to work with her in an orchestral setting is amazing. I feel that working with the symphony really shows me how beautiful the music can sound when played as a group. My favorite piece was definitely the folk tune and fiddle dance piece. It was fast-paced music, which I love. Overall, I learned a lot from the program and cannot wait to do it again next year!
We Sing! Children's Choir of Connecticut
A $1,200 grant from the Foundation made it possible for the 32 children of We Sing! to attend a production by the Waterbury Arts Magnet School of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at the Palace Theater in Waterbury. The grant also enabled the children to enjoy a pizza dinner together, afterward, and then perform the concert at Pomperaug Woods.
Community Music Day
Chime In! Music With a Mission
A grant from the Foundation provides music for over a hundred local singers, instrumentalists, and ringers who come together annually for the Chime In! Community Music Day. This event brings together many amateur and professional musicians from the surrounding area to spend an afternoon preparing and performing music together culminating in a public concert.
