For nearly thirty years, Church Street School for Music and Art has been dedicated to the idea that the development and expression of unique creativity is essential to the health and happiness of individuals and their communities. Our programs aim to serve a broad range of socially, culturally and economically diverse populations.
We are thrilled to be honoring two families who have been essential in shaping, supporting and living the mission of our beloved school. We have seen their children grow up within these walls, and we have been witness to their deep dedication to preserving the values of CSSMA within an ever-changing Tribeca landscape.
We also salute our incredible teaching artists, Z Behl and Azikiwe Mohammed whose brilliance, passion for the arts and deep care for their students has been vital to the formation of this community center’s open, accepting and inspiring culture.
Since its inception, CSSMA has served over 15,000 budding artists and musicians city-wide. As the only not-for-profit school for the arts in Lower Manhattan, we depend on the support of our immediate and extended community to fund important programming for people of all ages and backgrounds. This includes but is not limited to: extensive after school art and music classes, instrumental lessons, 72 (our city-wide teen program), band programs, arts programming in underserved communities, free choral programs, and scholarships.
Join us on March 5th for an unforgettable evening, and let’s take Church Street School to the next level!
