The Orpheus Male Chorus, in partnership with First United Methodist Church in Phoenix, presented a free concert to benefit SOUNDS Academy. |
SOUNDS Academy is a non-profit music education organization that teaches, mentors, and provides musical experiences and opportunities for underserved youth. Students receive individual lessons, group classes, and perform on instruments such as the violin, viola, cello, guitar, and piano. Instruments are provided to those who cannot afford one. In SOUNDS Academy students learn the values of creativity, leadership, perseverance, resilience, and teamwork through music education. We teach these values in our Musical Access Program, which connects students to live music and Instrument Petting Zoos, our Community Program for lower income schools and community centers, and our Strings Program, which adds one-on-one instruction.
