“Bring Back the Music”
Recently, schools across America, including Oklahoma, have decreased the programs offered to students due to declining budgets. Usually it is the performing arts programs that are affected. The demise of these programs harms all students. It is particularly harmful to low-income and socially disadvantaged children because they don’t have the resources to participate in performing arts elsewhere.
Every student is not a natural athlete, talented scientist, engineer or mathematician. Some students are gifted performing artists. For many, performing arts bring solace in a chaotic world. An Impact Oklahoma grant for our “Making Music Mobile” expansion initiative will allow us to add up to five sites throughout the metro. We are committed to providing arts education to students regardless of their ability to pay or their zip code.
