Boston Public Schools and EdVestors Announce $1.65M Anonymous Grant To Expand Music Education

Boston Public Schools and EdVestors announced a three-year, $1.65 million grant from an anonymous donor to expand sequential music education, focused on schools in East Boston. The announcement was made on Monday at the Curtis Guild School in East Boston.

“The arts is a critical part of education. This work takes a village and it warms my heart when members of our community are willing to give back in such a generous way to contribute to the success of Boston Public Schools. When partners invest resources and go beyond words, it provides us with much needed tangible support and complements what we’re doing with our students and takes the impact of our efforts to the next level.”
BPS Superintendent Mary Skipper

This financial investment will support expanded music residencies led by arts partners and in collaboration with BPS music educators; providing no-cost private music lessons to BPS students; purchasing musical instruments and equipment; providing additional band performance opportunities at festivals; and supporting guest artist residencies and workshops for East Boston schools.
