Music for the Children

I'd like to spend a little bit of time recognizing one of my favorite New York charities, the Orchestra of St. Luke's.  Many people know OSL as one of premier orchestras in the world but fewer people know about their amazing contributions to Arts Education.

The Orchestra of St. Luke's Founded its Education Program for New York City over thirty years ago, reaching out to all students, especially underprivileged ones.  The program is based off music as a medium of expression, involving "sound, movement, visual art, theatre and writing activities."  Many arts education programs encompass a variety of art forms, but the thing that makes OSL's program so special is that they are able to focus on one form so that students may become better versed in one area and experience it on a deeper level.
