Discover our initiatives to bring MUSIC back to SCHOOL!
Join us on Saturday, October 28th, for Denver’s best Halloween party at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver’s Holiday Theater! Hazel Miller and her band, The Collective, will headline the show so get ready for a night filled with unbelievable music while supporting music education in Denver.
Doors open at 6:00 pm, with an open bar and dinner from Mad Chad’s food truck included in the ticket price. The music kicks off at 6:30pm with Moonsmith, an up-and-coming indie pop band based in Fort Collins. Then, following a short performance by Education Through Music Colorado students, the legendary Hazel Miller and The Collective hit the stage.
All Together Now!
On May 11, 2023, during our annual All Together Now FESTIVAL, we launched the ETM-CO Awards to celebrate our music heroes in Colorado. The winners of this inaugural edition are acclaimed singer Hazel Miller, and the legendary music promoter Chuck Morris.
But there are many more heroes to 🙏 celebrate: the teachers and volunteers who gave our students a full day dedicated to music in the wonderful Newman Center for the Performing Arts. Our musical guests, our warm audience of parents and supporters and our generous sponsors. And most importantly our young stars: the extraordinary students who were so brave to take the stage and perform with passion, joy and confidence.
The downsizing of school budgets too often results in the elimination of music programs despite its proven potential to develop children’s emotional, behavioral, and relational development. Our mission: to bring music back to schools so that all children, despite social or economic status, have access to a high-quality education. Music is integrated into the school day through the skills of exceptional music teachers who are trained to promote diversity and foster parental and community engagement. Our national network serves more than 40,000 children every year in New York, Los Angeles, Denver and Boston. In Colorado, we operate in 8 schools involving a community of 10,000 people including students, families and school staff.
