"Music philanthropy has become a driving force in our mission and the lens through which we examine all of our work ….
Giving the gift of music is the heart and soul of Indian Hill Music. With our new mission of "sharing the transformative power of music through teaching and performing, and giving music generously when there is need," we are committed to deepening our musical presence in the 60-town region we serve through a variety of philanthropic and community engagement initiatives designed to make music accessible to everyone – especially the underserved populations who need it the most.
Each year, the musicians of Indian Hill, from the Music School and Orchestra of Indian Hill, both professional and student, offer music in a wide variety of settings. Visits to schools, senior centers, assisted living facilities, community gatherings and other events bring music to those who otherwise would not have access, and help IHM meet its mission of giving back.
