There are so many calamities going on in the world today. Turn the TV on to any major new station and you will see headlines of natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and genocide. We, the Young Musicians Inspiring Change want to take a stand agains these issues and try to make a positive change in the world.
Our mission is to provide joy through our music for various types of communities. As a group we put on seasonal concerts in order to raise money for donations towards different causes/charities. We believe music is a powerful tool that can bring people together and better lives, which is what we strive to do.
