Music Unites’ mission is to fund sustainable music education programs in underserved communities. Presenting a variety of performances in different venues and locations, the nonprofit organization connects audiences with both emerging and established artists across all genres of music and provides opportunities for exposure to the diverse world of music. To date Music Unites has worked with artists including Sting, Mark Ronson, Daniel Merriweather, John Forte, Peter Bjorn & John, Melanie Fiona, Kate Nash, Joshua Bell and Lang Lang.
In less than two years, Music Unites has grown from an organization that connects people through music and performance, to a national non-profit organization that is simultaneously supporting music education programs in urban student communities, helping musicians from diverse genres get their music heard, introducing audiences to new artists, and providing unique partnering and branding opportunities for a variety of organizations.
Music Unites’ current educational initiatives includes the Music Unites Youth Choir, Empowering Women through Music platform, Through a partnership with the Benito Juarez Community Academy, and 5-City School Search with its pilot model program with the Benito Juarez Community Academy in Chicago, where the organization funded instruments for students and is currently helping reinvigorate its music education programs.
