THANK YOU TO OUR 2017 BENEFACTORS:
Old Town School of Folk Music celebrates the role of philanthropists, musicians and educators who sustain Chicago’s unique and vibrant music scene. Our city nurtures musical virtuosity from a wide variety of cultures and generates opportunities for every citizen to experience, learn, and build their own creative life. The 2017 Legends Dinner honors 60 years of Old Town School of Folk Music’s contributions to music education in Chicago and our role as a national model for community arts learning.
Old Town School of Folk Music is guided by the philosophy that access to and participation in the arts is a human right. Our mission of “teaching and celebrating music and cultural expressions from diverse American and global communities” has remained consistent over six decades. Building one’s own creative life goes hand in hand with the basic human need for a sense of belonging and community – a project which the School continues to embody. Old Town School invests more than $2 million annually to support arts education programs, tuition aid for low-income students and innovative outreach programs that provide year-round instruction to thousands of under-served children throughout the city. This work includes our ambitious new Music Moves/Arts & Community Wellness initiative in Englewood. Your support of the Legends Dinner will help to ensure the continued growth of Music Moves and all of our education programs.
