Congratulations to Celina Miranda and Hyde Square Task Force for receiving a $500,000 Accelerator Award from The Lewis Prize for Music.
Accelerator Awards provide multi-year support to enable leaders and organizations to make sustained progress toward ambitious community change initiatives. The 2021 Lewis Prize for Music awardees are doing extraordinary work in cities across the United States to advocate for communities, foster creative engagement, and support the holistic well being of youth. By supporting music leaders across the country to continue their great work, The Lewis Prize for Music hopes to inspire other partners to work together to ensure every young person has the opportunity to access transformative music learning, performance, and creation.
