Institute for Musicianship and Public Service
Do you believe that music has the power to deepen relationships, cross social and cultural boundaries, and build strong communities? Do you feel that music can be a foundation for building social change?
And yet… do you sometimes struggle to feel connected to your audience? Do you feel frustrated with the unspoken economic and cultural barriers that often exist in the concert hall? Do you miss a sense of dialogue with your community?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, we hope you’ll consider applying to Community MusicWorks sixth annual professional development Institute for Musicianship and Public Service in Providence RI, this June 11-14, 2015.
The Institute offers musicians of all instruments the opportunity to explore and deepen the role of service in their careers, through a combination of seminars, workshops, and participation in CMW’s award-winning youth programs.
CMW is able to offer a limited number of scholarships to successful applicants, thanks to generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Applications will be posted on this website in January.
