Take Action to Support Arts Education
By Laura Day Giarolo and Brandon Gryde
The continuing resolution passed by the House last Tuesday avoids a government shutdown and gives lawmakers two weeks to come to terms on a budget agreement for the remainder of the current fiscal year, which lasts through September 30. This resolution cuts $4 billion in domestic spending, including the U.S. Department of Education-funded Arts in Education program (currently funded at $40 million), which supports newly emerging education models in high-poverty schools that improve arts learning. The loss of this program could result in the elimination of funding for more than 200 multi-year projects.

Class, Race, and Classical Music: the Debate
By Tom ServiceThe GuardianWednesday, April 16, 2014
Important, this: a debate on Class, Race, and Classical Music hosted by London Music Masters at the English Speaking Union. Candace Allen (whose piece on this crucial subject you can read here), violinist Tai Murray, and LMM’s Executive Director, Rob Adediran, were the panelists who inspired a wide-ranging, controversial, and challenging debate. Up for discussion, among much else, were the idea of who classical music is for, why we think it’s so important for the whole of society to have access to it, and what the institutions of music education and musical excellence can do to become part of people’s lives in areas of economic impoverishment and communities who wouldn’t otherwise have access or opportunity to be involved in this music.
