At Chittick Elementary School in Mattapan, arts leader Anna Deloi, along with her team partner Nash Ryder, shadowed the Boston Public Quartet and aided in their after-school chamber music program called musiConnects, whose mission is to create social change through chamber music. Anna stayed on after their project was finished and continued to work with a kindergarten class, bringing in guests musicians to share different genres of music with the students. As school is winding down, Anna shared her experience on the Boston Public Quartet’s blog:
“Music, for as long as I can remember, has been the way I’ve been able to say the things that are most important to me. But, in a way, I’d been stuck in a one-sided dialogue. As the performer, I did all the talking; I was only hoping my audience could understand me. At musiConnects, on the other hand, we were having a conversation through music; we were teaching the language to a whole group of students, who could use it to share with us as much as we could share with them.”
