M.U.S.I.C - Music Uniting Souls in Communities, is an initiative that brings people together of all backgrounds through music. It promotes the value of music education, exposure, and diversity. By providing resources and opportunities for people to be inspired and cultivated in the classical music industry, M.U.S.I.C can truly be all around us. My plan is to bring classical music to underserved communities, having the hard conversations with the industries greatest, creating scholarship fundraisers and implementing workshops.
"As Miss Illinois, I am ready to spread M.U.S.I.C. workshops across the entire state beginning with my hometown of Chicago and creating a resounding echo throughout the entire nation. M.U.S.I.C provides exposure of classical culture and increases appreciation for the relevance music has in today’s society. By breaking barriers and furthering awareness of diversity in classical music, we will be able to spark the fire and change the narrative." -Monica
