What We Do

BAE artists travel from New York City in ensembles of 6 for residencies in each school district, ranging between three and five days. Working with individual schools, Bridge Arts Ensemble artists aim to tailor their activities to best support a school’s curriculum and arts education needs. Each ensemble consists of a variety of diverse musicians, exposing students to musical styles including Broadway, Classical, Jazz and World music.

Meet our Artists

I liken what we do to tending a community garden. We all till the soil, we plant the seeds, we water and then we watch it grow. That’s the sacred work of the Bridge Arts Ensemble.
