During National Orchestra Institute + Festival 2019, Sound Impact collaborates with NOI+F to guide NOI+F Fellowship Ensemble Adelphi Quartet in the curation of an educational residency in Washington, D.C.'s Youth Services Center at the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services.
Sound Impact and the Adelphi Quartet will co-create a socially relevant curriculum that empowers incarcerated teenagesrs to find healthy channels to express their voices and expand their perspectives. The community-centered residency, "Use Your Voice" will focus on self-expression and teamwork through a combination of interactive performances of classical, contemporary and popular music paired with writing exercises and collaborative activities culminating in a performance.
