Stamford students involved in Project Music put their hard work on display with a performance at Atria. 

“They’re doing what they could in two and a half months," said Board president Joyce DiCamillo.

 It’s a brand new program, offering free music lessons to Stamford’s inner city youth. This performance now comes just two months after the program’s debut during which students practiced four days each week.

 “We’re giving these kids an even playing field to those kids who do have private lessons, who do have access and opportunity to music and the arts," she continued.

 Project Music is the brainchild of the late Anthony Truglia, who taught music in Stamford public schools.  The Stamford recreation department originally headed the program, but that funding came to be cut come 2010.  Now – four years later – his dream lives on through a public private partnership  with the Chester Addison Community Center and Domus, a Stamford organization that works with at risk youth.
