Music Across Oregon – Rural Outreach

Music Across Oregon reaches more than 2,100 students each year in underserved americorps_logo_big_000communities throughout rural Oregon. Through a partnership with AmeriCorps, sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service and administered by Oregon Volunteers, Ethos is able to provide increased access to music education and engage communities in the management and support of sustainable music programming.  During the 2019-2020 school year, members are living and teaching general music (during the school day) in the towns of Condon, Falls City, Madras, Monument, and Spray.

Ethos strives to tailor its programs to the needs and strengths of the communities it serves. Programming ranges from assemblies, workshops, short-term residencies, instrument lessons and year-long residencies with service both during and after-school. Additionally, all programming emphasizes community engagement and involvement.
