Introduction


Outreach

 

“We needed somebody to come and tell us that we can do this and that they believe in us.”

- a student at Langley-Bath-Clearwater Middle School in Warrenville, following a weeklong Joye in Aiken residency in which the Juilliard-trained Allant Trio taught them for two hours a day

 

Every year since 2009, Joye in Aiken has sent students, faculty and alumni from The Juilliard School and other prestigious conservatories into area neighborhoods – many of them isolated, rural and economically challenged -- to bring the magic and power of the arts to local students. During Festival week and at other times throughout the year, these artists visit schools and other venues to share their world-class talents. Everywhere they go, they teach. But they also do much more than that. To many of the students who hear them, they are a source of inspiration, pride and hope. They are living proof that hard work, talent and discipline can take you to the top of the world. They are mentors and role models. They are rock stars.

To date, the Joye in Aiken Educational Outreach Program has touched the lives of some 24,000 area students. In the last eight years it has supplemented the work of the dedicated but resource-poor arts teachers in our schools by providing an extensive slate of in-school performances, artist residencies, master classes, and one-on-one instruction.

The Outreach Program tells children that we believe in them.

Join us in our mission. Tell them that you believe in them, too.
