Scrollworks (Birmingham, Alabama)
The mission of Scrollworks is to make music instruction and ensemble playing available to all, thereby developing character and sense of community. Young people of diverse racial, social, cultural, and economic backgrounds are encouraged to explore and cultivate their musical talent and contribute to Alabama's musical culture, including those with disabilities. Building on PlayUSA’s support from last season—which emphasized creating a culture of practicing among students—Scrollworks will make entry-level music classes, youth orchestra, and private lessons entirely free of charge this coming season. PlayUSA funding will also support a new intermediate instructional level for string and wind ensembles.
