About the Keep Music Alive: Kickoff Concert

Education Through Music (ETM) is hosting a virtual benefit concert on Instagram Live on Thursday, June 25th, at 6 pm. This event is the official launch of our Keep Music Alive Campaign, to raise money throughout this summer with a singular focus – keeping music education alive for over 36,000 students across NYC.

For nearly 30 years, ETM has existed to combat the systemic inequality in our school system due to the unequal distribution of school funds to wealthy and poor communities. ETM believes all children have a right to a well-rounded education, but those living in Black and Brown communities are much less likely to have access to in-school art and music programs. We believe in the power of music education to inspire, motivate, develop, and build self-confidence in young people.

School year 2020-21 poses additional challenges due to budget cuts related to the coronavirus shutdown, expected to reduce the NYC Department of Education by over $600 million. We know the first programs to be cut will be music and art classes.

The Keep Music Alive: Kickoff Concert will provide much-needed funds to counteract these budget cuts, and raise awareness of the need and impact of music education.

Follow @ETMonline on Instagram to join us on June 25th at 6:00 pm.

Sponsorship Opportunities

ETM is looking to work with the music community and generous artists to lend their talents to raise a minimum of $25,000 to help ETM keep music education alive in NYC. We seek to raise funds through grassroots support during the live event, and corporate sponsorships. Proceeds from the concert will support ETM partner schools to ensure we can provide music education to even more students.
