YOU understand the promise and powerful potential of exposure to the arts in Bronx public schools. For 45 years, Bronx Arts Ensemble has been transforming young lives and making the arts more accessible for all Bronxites. Art changes lives. You can help. Please donate today.
Last year, seventy-four BAE teaching artists invested over 16,000 hours working with 5500 students, transforming 40 Bronx public schools into creative engines of multiple art disciplines. Your gift will help us foster collaboration, reflection and creative problem-solving in young people across the Bronx.
Because Bronx Arts Ensemble believes that no community should be without the arts, we expanded our venues and forged new partnerships presenting more than 50 live concerts in neighborhoods across the Bronx.
Here are some of BAE’s recent highlights:
- We launched a new curriculum development partnership with the Center for Arts Education Research of Columbia Teacher’s College
- We created a new teaching artist internship program with Lehman College
- We expanded our NYC-funded CASA after-school programs, now at 17 schools
- We kicked off of our new concert season in collaboration with Bronx-Cuban pianist and composer, Elio Villafranca
- We expanded our concert venues to Bay Plaza Mall, Mott Haven Historical Homes Association, Hutch Metro Center, and Horace Mann School
- We started a new “happy-hour” performance series in partnership with Marriott Residence Inn at Hutch Metro Center
With a dedicated staff and clear vision for the role of the arts in the Bronx, 2018 promises to be another banner year for BAE. But we cannot do our work without you. The Bronx Arts Ensemble is proud to have you as our partner in providing arts programming for all Bronxites.
