MUSICIANCORPS FEATURED ON NBC NIGHTLY NEWS WITH BRIAN WILLIAMS

MSNBC

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams featured Music National Service and MusicianCorps on a piece last night called “Making music, with a mission.” Music National Service (MNS) is a national nonprofit that supports music as a strategy for public good. MNS recently launched a domestic “musical Peace Corps” called MusicianCorps in five cities: Chicago, New Orleans, Oakland, San Francisco and Seattle. Twenty MusicianCorps Fellows serve full-time in public schools, parks and recreation centers, children’s and veteran’s hospitals, public housing communities and elsewhere in return for a living stipend, health benefits and professional development. Also be sure to watch NBC’s web-extra which offers more from students and MusicianCorps Fellows in their own words. To check out the on-air version of the program, follow the above link.
