Music for All is pleased to announce the United States Marine Corps as National Presenting Sponsor for its 2020 programs and events.
“We are thrilled to have the U.S. Marine Corps join us and support our mission to create, provide, and expand positively life-changing experiences,” said Jeremy Earnhart, President and CEO of Music for All. “The U.S. Marines exemplify leadership and character. Alongside the Marines’ core values of honor, courage, and commitment, these are qualities that young people learn through their participation in school music and that Music for All instills through our educational programs.”
“The United States Marine Corps looks forward to beginning a mutually beneficial relationship with Music for All as a partner in their member programming,” said Lieutenant Colonel Christian Devine, National Director of Marketing and Communication. “We are honored to extend our support to band, orchestra, and choral music educators across the country and look forward to forming invaluable relationships throughout our engagement with the Music for All community.”
The U.S. Marines’ National Presenting Sponsorship will support Music for All and its programs and events through 2020. Music for All developed new programming to serve music educators during the time of the pandemic, including educational webinars, virtual performance opportunities, remote feedback and workshops for students and teachers. The U.S. Marines presence during the fall programming will include performances, U.S. Marines Pre-Show for the Music for All Live Showcases, and student workshops with Marines musicians.
Music for All is celebrating 45 years in 2020. The organization’s advocacy efforts help to ensure access and opportunity for music education for all children in their scholastic environment. Music for All’s programs and events include the Bands of America Grand National Championships and Regional Championships for marching bands; the Music for All Summer Symposium camp for students and teachers; the Music for All National Festival for bands, orchestras, choirs, percussion and chamber ensembles; Affiliate Regional Music Festivals held across America; and national student honor ensembles including the Bands of America Honor Band that will march for the fifth time in the Rose Parade® in 2022.
