CommonChord Project’s ongoing mission is to give voice to the next generation’s concerns and perspectives and to break down social barriers through the healing power of song.
CommonChord Project brings teenagers together from diverse communities to create and perform original songs.
Our pre-college Summer Institute is part cultural/social exchange and part intensive arts training. Students are guided by master teaching artists in composition, songwriting, performance and intergroup relations. Original songs are then turned into music videos to be shared widely on social media platforms.
Young people are inheriting a divided country. Yet we believe that the next generation is in a unique position to break down these social barriers through the transformative power of music.
Our intention is that the work we create will inspire people on a larger scale — one song at a time.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
The inaugural season will take place in Denver - July 12-14, 2019.
Join the effort in bringing our vision to fruition.
