Mission Statement: Music Bridges International, Inc.

Music Bridges International, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization that serves as a “musical missionary” by sponsoring bilateral and multilateral musical “events” to increase awareness of music’s power to shape and transform society.

Bridges uses the non-verbal international language of music to help people in two or more countries become more conversant with each other’s culture while celebrating their own artistic heritage. Bridges helps plan and sponsor cross-cultural artistic festivals. A centerpiece event – usually a concert or series of concerts – may be accompanied by educational activities (lectures, master classes, workshops, exhibits, visits to local schools and conservatories), recordings, competitions and the commissioning of new works, in partnership with local media outlets.

Bridges events feature nationally and internationally known artists performing the works of living composers as well as traditional repertory (both classical and local folk and popular music). A goal of Bridges is to foster a sustained musical presence in the host community after the event is over. Bridges also offers communities and organizations assistance in developing similar events.

Music Bridges International is exempt from Federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). All contributions are tax deductible.
