PMAY Artists' Initiative - Philadelphia Musicians Alliance for Youth

Thursday, August 31, 2023

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

The PMAY Artists’ Initiative offers students financial support to make lessons, music classes, youth orchestra participation, and summer music camps affordable. Students will be able to attend free college and career preparation workshops, and PMAY teachers and staff will work with each family to make sure each musician has a strong plan to be accepted into a music conservatory, college or university music school majoring in music. The PMAY Artists’ Initiative accepts applications from rising 5th through 12th grade students from backgrounds that are underrepresented within the professional orchestra field, including Black/African-American, Latinx, Native American, Alaskan Native, South Asian, Southeast Asian and/or Pacific Islander. Students who may identify differently may also qualify if they experience adversity such as economic disadvantages or will be the first in their family to attend college. This program is for the following orchestral instruments: violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, trumpet, horn, trombone/bass trombone, tuba, & percussion, harp.
