Community Partnership Programs

Using music to connect the Milwaukee community

Creating a Community Around Music

We build community through collaborative partnerships, resulting in more diverse representation from the region in which we work and live.

Our Community Partnership Programs (CPP) focus on children who either reside in or attend school in the City of Milwaukee. CPP musical genres include strings, jazz, steel pan, and bucket drumming. Some of the organizations we work with in CPP include Milwaukee Schools (including Milwaukee Public Schools), the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, and the Latino Arts Strings Program. Beyond the City of Milwaukee, we pioneered a beginning strings training program at Hawthorne Elementary School, a predominantly Latino public school in Waukesha.

We also offer more than 25  free concert performances to 5,000 children attending Milwaukee area schools, engaging them in a peer-to-peer performance by a MYSO ensemble.
