Concert series to feature over 500 students
During the month of March, join the Miami Music Project as it will host its Children Orchestras for their 2016 Spring Concert Series. The annual event is a four-concert series highlighting nearly 500 students.
The first performances in the series will take place Saturday, March 12, 2016, at 1:00 pm at Manuel Artime Theatre. This performance will celebrate the community of Little Havana, which is home to one of Miami Music Project’s four chapters.
The following 3 shows will be at their respective chapters: Little Haiti (Toussiant L’Ouverture Elementary), Liberty City (Charles Drew K-8 Center), and Doral (John I. Smith Middle Learning Center).
As Miami’s only El Sistema-inspired program, Miami Music Project provides music classes to children from at-risk demographics and those who otherwise would not have the opportunity to take full advantage of an integrated music program.
Founded in 2008 by world-renowned conductor James Judd, The Miami Music Project (MMP) ensemble is comprised of young musicians committed to social transformation through music. The after-school program is designed as a tuition-free, high-quality musical training for young musicians while at the same time improving their social and academic skills.
MMP uses music as an instrument for social transformation, empowering children to acquire values and achieve their full potential, positively affecting their society through the study and performance of music.
