Founded in 2008, LiveConnections creates unique programs that inspire learning and build community through collaborative music-making. We approach live music as an essential social and educational experience that helps create engaged and well-rounded global citizens. Bridge Sessions, our signature interactive educational performances, blend live music with hands-on activities, introducing students from Philadelphia public schools and people with disabilities to diverse musical cultures. Our in-school and after-school residencies provide students from under-resourced schools with sustained, in-depth music-making experiences. In addition, our critically acclaimed LiveConnections Presents concert series features unique artist collaborations and boundary-crossing new music. We are a nonprofit organization in residence at World Cafe Live.
