Virtual Program

Charter Oak Youth Musicians

Charter Oak Cultural Center is a multi-cultural arts center in Hartford.  It is housed in an historic building, which was the first synagogue in Connecticut.  Charter Oak’s mission of doing the work of social justice through the arts, is a commitment to providing access to the arts for those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to engage in them. 

Susan Mazer, the Director of Charter Oak’s Youth Arts Institute, will present an overview of their free education programs, which serve over 1,000 Hartford students each year.  She will show a PowerPoint with slides and videos of the children’s performances and accomplishments, and discuss the center’s plans for expansion in 2022.  The presentation will end with a question and answer about Charter Oak and the growing need for arts education in Hartford.
