Musicopia is a nonprofit after school program that works to ignite lifelong interest in music for youth. The program works to establish partnerships with school districts throughout the region, and is a leader in revitalizing in and after school music programs.

Musicopia’s mission is to bring a vibrant combination of music performance and education to both students and communities. The nonprofit provides musical opportunities for children from kindergarten through high school, and just last year worked with 25 Philadelphia area high schools. Musicopia concentrates on schools in the poorest of neighborhoods and offers different opportunities for those within those neighborhoods to work with music.

Some of the schools that Musicopia has been able to work with so far include, Andrew Jackson School in South Philadelphia; St. Martin de Porres in North Philadelphia; and Eugenio Maria de Hostos Charter School in Hunting Park.
