A Musician-led Initiative to fight hunger in our local communities

Fellows

Music for Food’s Fellows program is now in its third year. It helps young musicians become citizen-artists, and teaches them to engage with social problems in the local community. Our goal is to tackle the global, and seemingly intractable, problems of hunger as a musician, and to learn to use music as a tool for social justice.

Fellows serve as Ambassadors for Music for Food, presenting assemblies, masterclasses, and concerts at local middle and high schools, and assist with the core concert series. We teach Fellows the skills needed to be effective ambassadors during the year of the fellowship, and beyond.

To date we have worked with Atrium School (Watertown), Conservatory at Highlands (Newton), Rivers School & Rivers School Conservatory (Weston), Roxbury Latin (West Roxbury), St. Paul’s Choir School (Cambridge), Waring School (Beverly).

This program started thanks to the generous gift of a 2013 Harvard Musical Association George Henschel Community Award.
