BAE’s goal has always been to create experiences that impact the school community at large, not just music students. As a result, we have reached well over 70,000 students annually in upstate NY.
Each year BAE added roughly five to six school districts.
“This is always an amazing opportunity for our students. It remains one of my personal favorites. The concert was a wonderful way to begin the week. The BAE artists told students that music can be anything you make it. It can be a fun hobby used to pass the time, an important form of expression to get through a tough situation or it can be a driving force in your life!”
