The New School of Music is thrilled to offer a program titled Cultural Collage: Making Music in Our Global City featuring the ensemble the students have named the “Cambridge Kids’ Community Band.” This program is a collaboration between NSM and the Community Art Center, and aims to strengthen our city by bridging the gap between the diverse cultures of Cambridge through the universal language of music. This program is a great opportunity for children ages 6-12 to make music with new friends, explore the music of the world, learn from great music teachers, and build musical skills on new or current instruments. Students with instruments through their school are welcome to enhance their instruction, or students can learn and have access to program instruments.
