Congratulations To MC NC Artists For A Great Year Of Service

Congratulations to our 9 MusicianCorps Artist AmeriCorps members in North Carolina, who completed their year of service on Friday and celebrated with some cake!

Thank you to our 15+ partners, including public schools, universities, senior and disability care centers, and nonprofits in Winston-Salem, Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill for helping us achieve so much this year. In addition to their combined 10,000+ hours of service to partner sites, our MC Artists leveraged 325 North Carolinians in over 500 hours of music-driven service--that's over $12,000 worth of volunteer time given back to the state of North Carolina!
