#MusicMonday indeed! All of us at 92Y couldn’t be happier about this news. Bravo to everyone who helped make this happen!
"We applaud Mayor de Blasio, Comptroller Stringer and Chancellor Fariña in their initiative to support 120 new certified arts teachers, improve arts facilities in schools, and create new partnerships with cultural institutions," Larisa Gelman, Director of 92Y’s Educational Outreach Center said. For 25 years, 92Y’s Educational Outreach Center has ensured that arts, science and literacy programs remain accessible to everyone and that students attending NYC public schools grow up with the arts as a regular part of their lives.
