New Grant Award from California Arts Council!

The California Arts Council has just awarded us with a grant supporting our Aliso Pico Rec Center program! The California Arts Council’s mission is to advance California through the arts and creativity. The The Arts and Public Media Grant program supports multiplatform nonprofit media projects that demonstrate a clear approach to building public awareness and support for the arts. The program is rooted in the California Arts Council's vision to create a state where the arts are a central component of daily life and accessible to all, reflecting contributions from all of California's diverse populations and fostering civic engagement.

With support from the California Arts Council, In The Band will continue offering music instruction two days per week at the IMPACTO After School Program at Aliso Pico Recreation Center (APRC). Funding will be used to support our teaching artists. By bringing our culturally-relevant, after-school mobile music program directly to schools and community centers, In The Band has taught the fundamentals of musicianship to more than 18,000 underserved youth, ages 5 - 19 in over 130 locations.
