The foundation, which is affiliated with the National Association of Music Merchants, funds organizations throughout the world that provide access to music education and promote the pleasures and benefits of making music.
In San Diego, the foundation is helping fund the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory to support expansion of the Community Opus Project, which provides community-based music programs for at-risk youth, as well as community-wide efforts to reinstate music education programs.
“These projects advance access to music by providing innovative music learning experiences,” said Mary Luehrsen, executive director of the Foundation. “Through their efforts, these organizations galvanize support for music education in the communities they serve. We are honored to support them and we value their collaboration.”
The merchants association also operates the Museum of Making Musing near Legoland.
