The International Music Foundation brings expert musical instruction to under-resourced neighborhoods in Chicago through a long-term strategy of artistic and community collaboration. Teaching artists and professional ensembles bring innovative approaches and projects to music education students in public schools throughout Chicago and in after-school community music programs, with recent residencies focused in the Uptown, Albany Park and Back of the Yards neighborhoods.

In partnership with ensembles such as Third Coast Percussion, Axiom Brass, Spektral Quartet and 5th House Ensemble, IMF designs curricula for students that is unique, and seeks to celebrate and honor cultural musical traditions while building a strong educational foundation through classical music training in neighborhoods throughout Chicago.
