Our History

Committed to music education, the Fischoff uniquely partners with competition alumni to bring free, innovative music programs directly to children in their own schools and community centers. Known as the Fischoff Arts-in-Education Residency, these programs have served 68,000 community children since 1995 and reach more than 2,500 underserved and at-risk children each year. Additionally, Fischoff offers several programs to support and encourage area high school-aged musicians.
