About Project STEP Project STEP began its work in 1982 in collaboration with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston University, and New England Conservatory. Through participation in high-quality, comprehensive classical string training, Project STEP students develop the tools they need to succeed not only in their musical aspirations, but also in academics and careers. Our program teaches fundamental skills including problem solving, collaboration, and critical thinking, and STEP’s dedication to our mission reaches beyond our students, making sure their families are an integral part of the program. For forty years 100% of Project STEP graduates have gone on to college or conservatory and approximately 60% of students go into the music profession.
When you invest in Project STEP you are advocating for early and long-term access to high-quality classical string training for our student musicians. Your support also makes you an ambassador of a larger movement to change how our society values the diverse cultures and ethnicities of our communities.
This Giving Tuesday, Project STEP is eager to send our students and their family members to see cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason at Boston Symphony Hall this spring (May 7, 2021). Help us make this possible through a donation on Giving Tuesday – the global day of giving back.
The importance of our students seeing classical musicians of color on a world renowned stage is undeniable – it is something that will stay in their hearts and minds forever. Show our students that they can do and be whatever they want despite the racial and social barriers that are often difficult to overcome. Send us to Sheku!
