Engaged Curriculum Grants

Engaged Performance

Creating opportunities for campus engagement, cultural outreach and community building through music.

This pitch-perfect partnership brings together the Department of Music, the world-class Cornell Concert Series, Ithaca-based social service organizations and local music ensembles to create community-engaged classroom and performance opportunities. This project promotes a learning-centered, co-curricular and sustainable model for community engagement. Students gain the tools and skills necessary for embracing musical performance as a community-building activity, which deepens their sense of civic engagement and ethical practice. The involvement of Ithaca-based social service organizations connects underserved populations with the musical resources that the Cornell campus and music lovers from the greater Ithaca region have long enjoyed.
