Diversity in Music

A diversity gap exists in the band/choir industry for composers of diverse backgrounds. The goal of my project, Diversity in Music, is to utilize the databases provided by the Institute for Composer Diversity to expose the students of Park Chrisitan School and our community to composers of diverse backgrounds. The Institute for Composer Diversity is committed to the celebration, education, and advocacy of music created by composers from historically underrepresented racial, ethnic, and cultural heritages, and disabled composers. This grant will allow us to add up to 20 different band/concert pieces to immerse ourselves in the music created by composers of diverse backgrounds. Ultimately, this project is a long term investment in underappreciated composers, the education of students, and the exposure to diversity within whole community
