The Philadelphia Folksong Society's award winning Odyssey of American Music Education program has been active in Philadelphia Schools since 1974! Back then it was a novelty... now, it's sadly a necessity as the Society provides no cost music education programs to schools in our region where music programs continue to be cut or compromised at an alarming rate.
Philadelphia Folk Festival favorite Irish Mythen Music stopped by a Philadelphia School District Elementary School this past May where she did FIVE in-class concerts for students focusing on our differences and bullying. Watch Irish perform "The Bravery" (formerly "Let It Go" but apparently there's some Disney song with that name already...) with some talented elementary students!
Many Odyssey programs are the only music education that students get all year. Please consider a donation of any size to keep the music in our schools: pfs.org/supportpfs/
