At Lawrence, we believe that music is a birthright. This means that no matter who you are or what circumstances you are in you have the right to experience and participate in creating music. Music for All is the product of this mindset, and is the umbrella which houses all our outreach programs.

Music for All Initiative

Through the Music for All initiative, we strive to expand the impact of music outside of the concert hall by bringing music into the community to engage the audience in new ways and often to get them involved in the music making process itself. Using music to build bridges we challenge students to think outside the box, to create new and innovative performance opportunities for themselves, and to engage with their craft in new and expansive ways.

Through all this we lay the groundwork for them to create a musical life after Lawrence which suits their needs exactly, and is not simply a replica of what some might think is the life of a professionally trained musician.

Music for All is exactly what it sounds like; music, for everyone. Regardless of color, age, orientation, or ability.
