Please join us for the SupportMusic Community Forum

Produced in collaboration with the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, the live webcast kicks off the 2013-14 school year with a celebration of music education and a gathering of community and education leaders in Philadelphia who are working to assure that music and the arts are part of the core curriculum for all children.

The October 4th SupportMusic Community Forum is one of several Community Forums that will be presented in various U.S. cities this fall. Join us and spread the word as Philadelphia convenes to explore opportunities for every child to learn and grow through the arts. More information here.
