The Ensemble seeks to connect and inform all people who are committed to ensemble music education for youth empowerment and social change.


Impactful Creative Youth Development

Dalouge Smith, CEO, The Lewis Prize for Music

During my 20-plus years of being an arts advocate and leader of music for social change work, I have repeatedly returned to this question: “How can we best convey the scope and complexity of our field’s impactful work to funders and policymakers?” 

I’m confident this is a question many Ensemble readers also ask. Communicating the many benefits for young people, families, and communities that result from our work is more complex than a sound bite.


The Ambassadors’ Exchange: In Our Own Voices

To complement the “Ambassador (Re)Introductions” published in April, the cohort recorded video introductions for the month of June. Listen to the Ambassadors as they say hello in their native languages, from every corner of the globe.
