Based on the conviction that musicians can play an
important public service role, Community MusicWorks
has created an opportunity for professional musicians to build and transform
their own urban community.
the permanent residency of its core group of professional musicians, Community MusicWorks provides
free after-school education and performance programs
that build meaningful long-term relationships between
professional musicians, children, and families in
urban neighborhoods of Providence, Rhode Island.
In 2006, Community
MusicWorks successfully piloted a two-year Fellowship
Program in order to share its unique model with
interested musicians and urban communities from across
the country. A semi-annual Institute for Musicianship and Public Service was added in 2009.
