Community MusicWorks in The New Yorker

"Community a revolutionary organization in which the distinction between performing and teaching disappears."

"Ruth dislikes the word 'outreach,' which makes it sound as if he and the other musicians were extending their hands to unlucky souls drowning at sea. 'We are already living in the place that other people reach out to'..."

Alex Ross has written an excellent article on the importance (and viability) of music education to our American society. You may download a pdf version of the entire article by clicking here or access an online version here.
