Ambassadors of Music to the Puerto Rican Community

My Students

My music department students are some of the most amazing individuals that I have ever encountered! My school is a college preparatory academic magnet high school. Although traditional academic areas are the main focus for most students there, a huge cross-section of the population is heavily involved in the arts as well. I fully believe that a large part of the students' scholastic success is based on their involvement in the arts, specifically music.

The music department is also extremely culturally diverse and provides a safe space where students forge life long friendships and foster their love of making music together.

They perform repertoire from a variety of styles, genres, and periods of music history. In turn, they discover new works that enlighten them, and they continue to bring joy to the school community.

My Project

Our High School is a place where students from the School District of Philadelphia go to reach for their dreams. This academic magnet school boasts one of the finest music departments in the city. Our students are not only bright but incredibly talented as well. These talents and passion for the arts need to be shared with the world! In turn, our students will gain a new perspective on what it is like to make the world a better place through music.

Puerto Rico is a community that is still healing from the ravages of Hurricane Maria, and it is our hope to help in that healing process by bringing joy and comfort to the people of San Juan through the splendors of music.

Our students will not only perform publicly but also engage in a side by side event with a local high school. They will participate in clinics at the San Juan conservatory of music. And they will also contribute through involvement with a community service event. This is the type of trip that will change a young person's life in so many ways!
