As part of our mission, Music Drives Us strives to support musicians who have a passion for the shared musical performance experience. Throughout New England, talented musical groups are struggling to find the monetary means to bring their music to interested listeners through complimentary concert series in schools, afterschool programs, and public town spaces.
Music Drives Us will work with the selected grant recipients to underwrite a program that, through our funding, compensates them for their time and expenses. In order to be eligible for a grant, the individual must:
- Provide a performance in the Greater Boston Area between April 28 and May 7
- Provide complimentary access to his/her performance for all patrons
- Include a musical education component to his/her performance
