the project

The mission of Lake Affect Arts is to spread music of all genres and cultural backgrounds in the community on two primary fronts. The first is a rigorous education program that will work with schools to provide both regular outreach performances as well as supportive curriculum plans. Both are taught by professionally acclaimed guest artists as well as passionate student performers from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Second is the production of a concert series at the newly restored LaSalle Theater in Colinwood that will feature offerings from leading artists, such as members of the Cleveland Orchestra, in addition to a great many bright young performers who need the real world stage experience to break through as polished artists. We believe that through all of these initiatives Lake Affect Arts can bring the thoroughly documented scientific benefits of music education to Cleveland schools of all levels, provide CIM and local students real world performance and teaching opportunities crucially needed for professional development, and bring a unique style of concert presentation to our LaSalle Theater Series. The greatest revolutions in art and culture have always come about because people embraced what they stood for, please help us to ignite a renaissance that has the power to transform our communities.To learn more about us or to contact us, please check out our website at www.lakeaffectarts.org, and our social media links below.

the steps

In order to launch our organization we have planned numerous benefit concerts in addition to our crowdfunding efforts. Our success will involve the accomplishment of the goals described above, the production of our concert series as well as our inovative education program. Both of these will happen in various forms year round. 

why we're doing it

 We founded this non profit becuase we share a collection of values and ideas about art in our time, its crowning moments, and the vast potential of its untapped future. Imagine for a moment if the walls of Severance Hall or Nighttown Jazz Club could talk. The stories they would tell of great rapture, great tragedy, and depth of shared human experience would be astonishing. As an expression of culture each genre of music conveys to us what it must have been like to live at that point in human history. Music, therefore, is not only a way of connecting with one another in the present but also of reaching out and touching those who lived before us. In our much loved home city of Cleveland we see a chance to spread these great benefits of music on a scale that has not been done before. We see the chance to transform communities through both our concerts and education initiatives. As described above science has well documented the massive benefits music can have on a community and future generations, increasing brain plasticity and reversing the effects of poverty. We believe that it is the responsibilty of members of a community to take actions to improve it when opportunities present themselves, and that is why we are embarking upon this project.
