The Citizen Musician initiative exists to sustain and expand the role of music in civic and cultural life by creating and enhancing communities through music. A Citizen Musician strives to transcend technique, to create empathy, and to direct the value and relevance of music toward positive social change.
The Citizen Musician rationale is this: music can bring beauty and hope to people’s lives and create connections between people. For these reasons, music has the power to create stronger and more vibrant communities.
Citizen Musicianship results from the actions of those who embrace the transformative power of music and use it to inspire others. A Citizen Musician constantly asks themselves, how can music enrich my community? Citizen Musicians include individuals and organizations who share these aspirations.Register and Get Involved
