Project Music started in Stamford just last September. The after school music education project, geared towards inner city students, now has over 50 Stamford students involved, with a majority of them from the Chester Addison Community Center

Project Music Executive Director Garrett Mendez says the El-Sistema-inspired programs began popping up in the U.S. over the last decade. This week, Stamford’s participants welcomed their musical counterparts from two successful programs in Baltimore and Waterbury.

Project Music hosted their fellow musicians for a two-day workshop, ending with a final group performance at the Chester Addison Community Center Thursday night.

While the program is still new to Stamford, Executive Director Garrett Mendez says he’s already seeing tremendous growth from its students. To find out more about the Stamford program, visit
