Haven, I learned that music is not just about playing an instrument; it’s also
about helping a lot of other individuals in need and doing a lot of
extraordinary things for people.”
—Chris B., age 12, cello participant in Music Haven.
Music Haven’s mission is to build a vibrant urban
community through music education and performance that transforms the lives of
