Project STEP (String Training Education Program) recognizes that certain racial and ethnic minorities are vastly underrepresented in classical music. Their mission is to address this imbalance by identifying musically talented underrepresented students from Boston and surrounding communities, providing them with comprehensive music and string instrument instruction. They set the highest standards for disciplined study and performance, and offer a platform for students interested in pursuing classical music careers as well as other courses of study.

This event is co-sponsored by the Fine Arts Center. It will be approximately 60 mins with time for Q&A. Visit the Speaker Series webpage for more information and to learn about other events in the series.
