Indian Hill Music in Littleton, MA has received $88,700 in combined grant funding from several local foundations, the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the National Endowment for the Arts to support its Community Outreach Initiative.

Since 2007, Indian Hill Music has raised over $100,000 to help fund community engagement programs designed to bring music to a wide range of constituents, including School Music Partnerships (in-school performances, after-school instrument lessons and special family events), Senior Outreach (free monthly Bach’s Lunch Concerts and numerous off-site performances by Indian Hill faculty and student musicians), and Indian Hill’s Threshold Singers (a volunteer healing chorus that sings at the bedsides of the sick and dying).

“It is very gratifying to receive support from these foundations for our Community Outreach Initiative as well as for general operating needs,” said Indian Hill Music Executive Director Susan Randazzo of the school's recent grant funding. “Over the past year our outreach activities served over 6,600 people in our service area.”
