At Project 440, we believe every young person should be provided with the opportunity and tools for individual growth and community impact. That's what we do for young musicians.
Project 440 engages, educates and inspires young musicians, providing them with the career and life skills they need to develop into tomorrow's civic-minded, entrepreneurial leaders. We instill in them the importance of sharing their musical gifts and using music as a tool to give back to their communities.
From Philadelphia's All City Music Program to Carnegie Hall's National Youth Orchestra 2, from the Philadelphia International Musical Festival to the New York State Summer School of the Arts, Project 440's programs have enriched the lives of hundreds of young musicians by giving them real-world experiences in community engagement and entrepreneurship. They complete our programs equipped with a tool kit that prepares them for college and for careers in the 21st Century. For those who continue on in the music profession, we are building the next generation of giving, civic-minded, entrepreneurial musicians - assets to any orchestra, chamber music society or community in our country. For those who choose a different path, we have helped them to develop a skill set that will always benefit them - whether they are venture capitalists, social workers, foundation executives or educators - and a life-long love that will be with them for the rest of their lives. They will be the future concert goers, the future board members, the future philanthropists and music enthusiasts.
